Happy Birthday (Plus One)… July 22, 2007

…to Phydeaux over at Phydeau Speaks. This comes a day late, as I got in “last night” at around, oh, today.

Anyway, P-Dawg is hovering in the fractionally undifferentiated vicinitude of 7-1/2 (dog years, that is.) I’m right behind you, Big Guy – September has my cross to bear đŸ˜‰

I’d like to take this opportunity to say just a couple of serious words, without my usual snark or attempts at humor.

I’m pretty disgusted with how the world is turning these days and with the part our government plays in supporting the Corporate Conquest of Everything. A few months back I stumbled onto the Blogosphere via Blue Gal, who introduced me to Melissa at Shakesville, who’s frequent visitors included Phydeaux, whose friends DCup and Teh Portly Dyke caught my eye…

See how that works? Suddenly I find myself surrounded by the lucid voices of intelligent, concerned people who think with a clarity to which I can only aspire, expressing themselves with an eloquence which humbles me. It’s made my world a better place and given me real hope that things can be turned around, because dammit, We The People really are out there!

Thank you all for being there, for being my reason for hope and trust and optimism.

And thanks, Phydeaux, for being such an important link in that chain.

Many thanks for the natal wishes, my friend – but your early morning internets surfing (must have been pre-coffee) confused some dates. My birthday was actually the 11th, not the 21st.

It’s all good, though, I sometimes forget what day I was born my own self, and often have to think for a moment to remember just how no longer young I am (once I made it to 21 age became less important, ya know?).

And back atcha on the link in the chain thing. The commonality is Shakesville, and the QCoFM herself – Melissa. If I may paraphrase “The Doxology” on a Sunday morn… “Praise Shakesville, from whom all friendships flow!”

Well said, C.R. I love how the circle widens, overlaps, new circles start….
