What's a birthday? Well, for one, it means you made it through another year. Trials, tribulations, joys, sorrows, adventures, love, frowns, and smiles. Friendships won... friendships lost. A valley of tears softened by love and consolation.
But also the realization that indeed, what hasn't killed me has made me stronger. So before I get into any deep philosophy, enjoy my newest birthday past time... drawing and shading pictures of nude 1950's models!
As Aneta says, progress... not perfection. Good grief! Time to quit shading this lady and move on. Suzy is waiting!
