34

in about 2 1/2 hours i will turn 34. why do we make such a big deal of birthdays? in india only the males celebrate birthdays, even as children. every year i try to cancel mine....or try to slide by hoping no one remembers. i forget everyone's birthday, why can't they do the same for me? our parents should get the celebration....after all, they did the work, no? i am eternally 24 anyway. i don't know why i got stuck in that year. a friend of mine sends me a card on my birthday wishing me a happy whatever anniversary of my 24th birthday. ;)
i think this year i will be 12 again.
in the great scope of things 34 isn't that old at all. i don't know what i expected my life to be like at 34. i've never been one to think about the future....it is too abstract for my thought process. i like to think of things more concrete....like world peace ;)
so here goes another year and another day that really isn't any different from any other day.


my horoscope:
"So many poets have the courage to look into the abyss," wrote Kenneth Koch in describing Nobel Prize-winning poet Saint-John Perse. "But Perse had the courage to look into happiness." It's a radical departure from what traditional astrologers say about you Scorpios, but I'd like to name Perse your patron saint for November. More than ever before, you now possess the capacity to set aside your fascination with darkness and gaze smartly into the complex depths of sweetness and light. Halloween costume suggestions: angel carrying a clipboard, cheery clown wearing a stethoscope and white doctor's coat, a bride with a blow-up doll of the Dalai Lama.

Roma

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
