Come celebrate with me

I love birthdays, mine and others'. My birthday is on the 27th and, in celebration of being alive in this glorious, confusing, thrilling, unsettling and exquisite world, I'd like to give you some birthday presents. Every day, between now and the day I turn 45 (45!? how did I get here?) I will post something I love that I'd like to share with you. I think the hobbits have the right idea - give presents on our birthdays to those with whom we share the journey.

So, to start, Lucille Clifton celebrates.

See you tomorrow for another one.

  3. Won't you celebrate with me....... I had no model...... born in Babylon. THANK YOU Lucile Clifton..... between starshine and clay..... that everyday something has tried to kill me and has failed. Thank you. Thank you. For your voice. For your reaching to women everywhere. To Laura Packer. To girls and moms and grandmoms and single women and witches and crones..... to the Shifras and the Liliths. To me. Thank you Laura for sharing this treasure.
