Barb's T-day Message

 “The only dream worth having is to dream that you will live while you are alive, and die only when you are dead. To love, to be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and vulgar disparity of the life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. ...To respect strength, never power. Above all to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.”
― Arundhati Roy

I am thankful today for life, my loving partner, our sweet birdies and all our kind friends and supporters, as well as for any and all of the characteristics described above by Aarundhati!

I'll be thankful if I can live and die half as well as AR describes it above.

Thanks for the beautiful sentiment, BW. It is an inspiration.
