all things are possible
This photo by Laurent Chehere is just how I feel, somehow. His wonderful "Flying Houses" of Paris were featured on Slate this week.
Today is my birthday, and it has been a lovely day from start to finish. I've had pecan pie, chocolate mousse, and cheesecake (not all at the same time...thank goodness). I've had lovely messages from friends far and near, and a few wonderful gifts. Now that everyone is asleep I'm looking up "If February 7 is your birthday" horoscopes." April is apparently going to be an excellent time to put new enterprises into motion. Ohh, and here's a better one: All things are possible, at least for you. Now that's what makes the Globe and Mail a superior paper.
There hasn't been much time for writing today, although earlier today I was reading this very long but enjoyable book club discussion with George Saunders on The Rumpus. I don't have a copy of Tenth of December, but I'm sure it'll come into my hands eventually. Here's a shorter Q&A with him in Portland Monthly Mag, posted yesterday, that I stumbled onto this evening.
