Subject:A Birthday!!
Time:02:31 pm

Today is the birthday of the wonderful jan_u_wine whose incredibly moving LOTR-themed verses, posted on mechtild's LJ, have delighted so many. Although I'm not certain that you'll get to see this Jan, I want to wish you a very Happy Birthday - I do hope you're having a wonderful day:)

For you, one of my favourite Frodo pics!

it was fine. I had a cold and I had to work, but rec'd many loving messages from colleagues and friends. The nice part is that my b'day falls close to Memorial Day, so b'day weekend is always packed with special stuff. And now that I'm feeling better, I'm in a good place to appreciate it all.

Let the music begin!

thank you again for the good wishes,

jan

Yes, he does. I can't pick just one Frodo pic as my absolute favourite, there are just too many gorgeous ones to choose from, but this would definitely be in my top five:)

Oh, Paulie, thank you so much! I've actually had a very nice day.....and it is still light here in Cali. A perfect spring day, with lovely, light breezes off the ocean, (as opposed to the roaring ones we had just last week, that stripped my poor plants bare!)and the moon already up in the sky, with a few clouds wisping around (for dramatic effect, I reckon).....

I'm very grateful that people enjoy the poetry. It's a privilege to be able to work with Mechtild, and an honour to write in Tolkien's universe. I usually have a mathom poem on my birthday, but I've been sick this past week, so I'm afraid I've got *nothing*.

May I also thank you, Paulie, for all the lovely posts you've made here. What a lovely gathering of memories. thank you, and thank you for the birthday greetings.

Lol - I actually meant had you recovered from your illness (which you mentioned in your previous comment) - not from the excesses of a birthday binge!! :D Have fun at the weekend:)

ah! I see. Well, feeling much better, and the mischief is still in the cards (though I fear there'll be no indulging, unless it's in an excess of music).

thank you, Paulie!
