My Birthday was last Tuesday. I have to admit that the transition into this year was bittersweet. However, the celebrations of my birth have been unexpected and quite splendid thanks to a super group of friends, who have shown up in so many ways for me over this past year. On the eve of my actual Birthday Ms.Jones and I drove into the sun on a mission to visit the Sideshow Emporium in Dolores, Colorado. It was closed, which gave us more time to share a two-glass bottle of fine French wine, a vanilla flavored cigar and dance to the sunset. The perfect way to end a roller coaster year. Thanks again Ms. Jones and all of you lovely people who I feel privileged to call friends. I heart you!
