Blowing Out the Birthday Candle

The Birthday – the milestone event of another year. I told Susie Lindau, the Wild Rider that I would blog about this day and then I proceeded to panic about it all week long.

This is why I write fiction. I’m no good with real life. My characters say it so much better than I ever could…to continue reading head to our new location.

  1. Happy birthday, Debra! I think I like this post best of all or yours so far. I understand a reluctance to celebrate too loudly. I make quiet observations and personal little indulgences on my birthday, but because I am the twin of a person who is mostly a hermit, it means a lot to him to make a big deal out of it. I am stuck between my wish to please him, and my self-consciousness about a celebration that shouts, “Gimme! Lookme!” I have no problem with celebrating other people’s birthdays, and I love to party and play dress up, etc., but not for my birthday, and not because of anything to do with aging.

      How fun! You’re a twin? I have twins in my family. It’s interesting that the two of you are so different about your birthday. Especially since the other is a hermit and they like to celebrate their birthday on a larger scale. You liking to dress up doesn’t surprise me in the slightest. You have such a wonderfully open and beautiful personality. I’m the same way when it comes to celebrating others milestones. It’s my owe that I’m quiet about.

  2. Happy birthday, Debra! I tried to leave a comment at your new sight but I was ejected! Anyway, good for you for taking the risk to write something a little more personal! (And, my shopping bags – hundreds of them – are at the front door ready to go back into the car…)

      Why did my site eject you? 😦 I want you there! I’ll have to look into that. I think I’ll start to be more personal on Thursdays. OMG, I have way more bags that I can every hope to use. LOL. It’s too funny.
