As always, I’m at a fork. Staying or leaving. It is a decision that I, like everyone in our batch, keep putting off. Even during the busy season it has always been at the back our heads, a thought that never goes away but is often unentertained. This time is different. This time it begs to be entertained. It is demanding an answer: yes or no?
(Clichés are coming)
I guess it’s true that as you live longer in this world, birthdays tend to be more quiet and ordinary like it’s just another day. This year I chose to celebrate my naming day here at home in the province so you can say I had it coming; knowing that there is still no power.
So before we are enveloped in total darkness and my battery begins to die, I want to thank everyone who remembered and sent their greetings despite the circumstances. Universe, you never fail to remember and notice me at least annually and, sarcasm aside, thank you for giving me the darkest and simplest birthday this year. I didn’t ask for it but it is just what I needed.
(On the upside, I’ll get to blow out about a dozen candles later yey! More wishes! And since the sky is starting to clear, your stars will be that much brighter.)
For happiness, cheers!
