Right, Chris.

You couldn't see it, but I'm wearing my Jester suit today (it's back from the cleaner's).

Or mimicking the Coyote (which the indigenous tribes revere here in the desert).

you guys, it's upside down...

choppy is how to describe fluency for a child's reading who needs more practice (word by word haltingly). I am soaked through with words like this, underwater... celebrating today, it's over for another year. By next year, I will have forgotten and I"ll probably go back for more. :)

then, there are the Hopi Mudheads who chop reality like a zen stick

Not last night,

Linda,

We will be able to send you wishes again pretty soon, then! Double-dipping, are we?

Our birthdays are close in time. I'm also a Cancerian (a real crab!), Moon-child. Mine is a week after the canonical June Solstice.

And in hexadecimal, it will begin my last chance to be in my thirties! I shall enjoy it. Jack Benny never had it so good.

Cheers!,

--Joe

Here is another crab :blush:

Mine is the exact hemispherical equivalent to Dogen's and Hakuin's - when the cherries and plums start to bloom :dance:
