My Birthday!!!

Next week is my birthday and taking advantage of the “You Pick it” challenge that Ann-Christine has launched for us, I have decided to move forward a bit to celebrate it with my friends from Lens-Artists.

I don’t want to run away from my age… if you add up the numbers you’ll know how old I am.
Can’t you believe it? Neither can I. 😁
I would like to celebrate it, although, given the circumstances, I won’t be able to do it, at least I hope to receive virtual congratulations and I guess nothing will happen if I get a hug or two.
I leave you this precious poem, which I think reflects very well, as I feel with my fifty-something…
At fifty I grew wings.
My breasts and the thoughts
I carried as a child stopped weighing.
I taught the wings to fly from my mind
that it had always flown,
and I saw from the air
that while I was sleeping for so many years
someone was busily picking feathers
to make those wings.
I was lucky that when they were made,
they found me awake.

Poem by Begoña Abad
