abstract butterfly

like being 17 3 times over

My 51st birthday. Red velvet cupcakes. A Brazilian steakhouse. A good day at work. Pledging to the local community radio because the song it played rocked. Enjoying reading Aldo Leopold. Great egrets flying. A precocious young fisherman, telling us about his massive past catches. The feeling of aging, perceptibly, imperceptibly.
