at the nature center for grandie v’s 6th birthday celebration
the scientist helps us to measure our wingspans
before we take a stroll outside to find this beautiful bird
rescued and healing a broken wing
whose wingspan we hope will return one day
and we are grateful to have our wings.
“happiness makes up for height for what it lacks in length.”
“mardi gras is the love of life.
it is the harmonic convergence of our food, our music, our creativity,
our eccentricity, our neighborhoods, and our joy of living.
all at once.”

what a birthday for grandie j
on an afternoon spent with family and friends at
imagine a mash-up of
barnum and bailey
guiness book of records memorabilia
carnivals, cotton candy, prize tickets
coin-operated animatronics, mechanical games
collections of very imaginable oddity
along with some
you could never imagine.
it was a boy’s dream come true.
“once a person has all the things they need to live, everything else is entertainment.”

such a wild adventure
grandie m’s 9th birthday fun
special ops teams, nerf guns, fairy bread, burger bar, headbands, sunglasses and laughs
one powerful team member even offered a great tip
when she warned me:
“never trust a panda with a gun.”
‘it’s all fun and games ’till someone loses an eye, then it’s just fun you can’t see.”
waking up in the irish hills looking out on the frozen lake
after a night spent bringing in the new year with special people.
“in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter,
for in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.”
a circle in motion will continue
until someone crashes into a tree or can’t breathe from laughing too hard.
it is possible for one conga line to travel in two different directions at the same time.
“the new physics provides a modern version of ancient spirituality.
in a universe made out of energy, everything is entangled; everything is one.”
