HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DEAR DUNCAN,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!
AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, DEAR STEVE.
May 14th marks the birthday of these wonderful friends and family. Duncan is the sweetest boy you'd ever want to meet. He's polite, kind, smart, and is the older brother to his two siblings. He certainly sets a wonderful example for them to follow.
Steve (standing in bright blue) is also celebrating his birthday on May 14th. I first met Steve at the local high school when he was teaching wood shop for adult education. Steve has been a mentor to me, not only with woodworking but in addition he always answered my questions in regards to mathematics when I was stumped in my advanced math classes at college. He is always cheerful and happy and is one of the most incredible woodworkers you have ever seen. He makes beautiful bowls that he turns on a lathe as well as furniture and anything else you can think of, including houses!
Another good friend of mine, Betty, will also be celebrating her birthday that day also but for some reason I could not find a photo of her. She lives in New Mexico now with her husband Jim and has a daughter named...Teri (and it is spelled the exact same way as mine)!
This area in the Sierra Foothills seems to be filled with people who are either born in April or May. We are earth signs and I suppose we end up living in areas that support our wanting to be close to nature and the earth. We are grounded and lovers of the land. We find solace in being close to the earth and its beauty. We find beauty in the simple things that are around us.
"I believe in God, only I spell it nature." Frank Lloyd Wright
"If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere." Vincent van Gogh
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MY TAURUS FRIENDS! I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST.
