Some people won't go the extra mile, and then on their birthday, when no one makes a fuss, they feel neglected and bitter.
I am going to notice the lights of the earth, the sun and the moon and the stars, the lights of our candles as we march, the lights with which spring teases us, the light that is already present.
My idea of absolute happiness is to be in bed on a rainy day, with my blankie, my cat, and my dog.
The worst part about celebrating another birthday is the shock that you're only as well as you are.
We can't understand when we're pregnant, or when our siblings are expecting, how profound it is to have a shared history with a younger generation: blood, genes, humor. It means we were actually here, on Earth, for a time - like the Egyptians with their pyramids, only with children.
