    Today Is

    My birthday. And it's no different from any other day. Not special at all. Pay the bills do some chores and go back to work. But I am definitely thankful for my family and another year.

    I Am Happy ...

    Whenever the pressure of our complex city life thins my blood and numbs my brain, I seek relief in the trail; and when I hear the coyote wailing to the yellow dawn, my cares fall from me - I am happy. Hamlin Garland
