Being

I was wondering why I like Canada so much. I think it is because you don’t have to do anything to be experiencing it. It has galleries and museums and sights and cities, but you can actually just be driving along and be struck by its beauty and immenseness. It is a country where you don’t have to be doing things to be experiencing it. It is a country where you can just “be”.

Anyway, it’s my birthday today. Happy birthday to me. I am having lunch with a couple of old work colleagues and am going out for dinner with G tonight (although somehow I did end up booking that myself…). Anyway, happy birthday to me.

Missed this yesterday; hope you had a great birthday and were given lots of books!

Mine is next week and I'm considering whether I can be bothered to make myself a cake or not. Much like booking one's own meal, I guess.

Random Reflections said...

Sarah - thanks. I haven't had any books so far. I do have a £50 book token I was given a couple of months ago, which I haven't spent yet though.

You can't make your own cake! That would be a crime! If nothing else, M&S do very nice cakes.

By the way, G is currently reading 'The Music of Chance' and thinks it is great.

Happy (somewhat belated) birthday. Love the card. Did you have cake?

Random Reflections said...

CoatMan - Thanks. There was cake and it was delicious. I finished it today.

Nice to see you back blogging again.

CoatMan said...

Random: Thank you! I presume that you'll be posting pictures of said cake on the 'blog...?

Coatman - sadly the cake is all gone and so there is no evidence to photograph.
