It’s the 28th of February again. For those of you who know me well – and may you survive that fate – you may think of this as a day that lives in infamy. hehe
Yes, I’m that guy with the quirky, okay, if truth be told … annoying sense of so-called humor. Able to leap tall buildings in a single pun, outrunning speeding bullets with uncanny sarcasm, and able to snark (is that a verb, really??) daggers through walls.
Honestly, I haven’t typically gotten too excited about my birthdays, but for some reason in the past two or three years, I’ve started to actually enjoy them. And it’s not in a call attention to my self type of selfishness. It’s because I get the chance to interact with “my people” more than I might on a “regular” day.
As I’ve gotten more and more into social media, I’ve realized that I really LOVE to communicate and correspond with people through the written word. Now that I’ve gotten on Facebook – kicking and screaming, I might add (thank you, Kricket!), been actively writing and interacting through this blog and so many other blogs, wholeheartedly embraced Twitter (in the last few weeks), “plused” Google+, and have found this amazing family of writers on the interwebs, it has opened me up to a whole new world.
And what a fantastic world it is: There are those folks from years past, who (or is it whom, editors?) I’ve been able to reestablish old friendships with; and so many wonderful new friends from all walks of life and countries. If life is all about relationships, and I believe that it is, than I truly have a very rich life.
So, without dragging this out, my birthday wish is to continue to get to know you all, more and more each day, and share myself from the bottom of my heart.
Oh, and if you do want to send cake, cookies, ice cream, or really expensive gifts, you know where to find me:
