"This is the violet hour, the hour of hush and wonder, when the affectations glow and valor is reborn, when the shadows deepen along the edge of the forest and we believe that, if we watch carefully, at any moment we may see the unicorn."

A Special Birthday Gift

Yesterday, was a special day....my birthday.  Last year, was the worst birthday I had - ever.  This year, it was one of the best.  Greetings and lovely gifts from my "Family"......that's all of YOU!

I did have one particular gift I want to share......  enroute to meeting a friend for lunch, the rain stopped, and a rainbow stretched across the Bay!  (You must look carefully - it's just at the bottom of the horizon. I only had my cell phone with me to shoot it.) We don't get many in SF - and I really took it to be a "Gift from God"....bringing me hope for the future.

I send each and every one of you a big hug and much love....thank you for being - YOU....

And tomorrow is Halloween!  May yours be wonderful and magical!   BOO!!!
