Today is my birthday.
I'm 58.
How can this be?
I don't feel that number.
My soul feels young,
My body not so much.
I've started to write a post several times.
But each time I'd stop and save it on my laptop for later.
Today my laptop just up and died.
No clue as to why.
So I doing this post from my phone and I seem to be having trouble with this thing too! 

I'm still working a lot.
No short days as the people who said they'd help cover haven't...but I don't care because soon I will have weekends off.
I have lots of creative projects going on right now but nothing finished that I can show. I'm just doing bits and pieces in between work and sleep.
I've been thinking about taking a break from blogging for just a bit. Just long enough to finish some things.
Now I apparently am being forced to.

I want to come back and have some good photos to share.
And some good stories.
I will still be haunting around blogs.
Reading on my phone as the dogs potty most likely, but I'm not so great commenting with the phone.
( this post has already taken twice as long to write! Lol!)
See you soon, when I get some things done and the laptop fixed!

So wish I could be there to help you celebrate your birthday and... celebrate getting older. An inevitability I'm afraid.
I've had some serious issues about getting older myself lately.
Seems I'm getting older, but not more "mature", lol.

Wishing you love, happiness and brainstorms of creativity aplenty.

One GOOD thing about getting older as an artist ~ at least there doesn't seem any age cut-offs, unlike other professions, where age is discriminated against.
We can get old, and eccentric, and more bold in our creations with not a care.
Art and artists are age-less.
The best works in the world were created by those well into their seventies... there is hope yet!! :)
We can be as potty and dotty as we like and it's OK, because we're artists.
I'll have a post out tomorrow, hopefully too - 'bout time...

Loads of love and hugs and cheers to you on your special day, my friend XXXXX

Good luck! I'll miss you but will be happy thinking of you doing some art work. :)

58 sounds young to me!

Happy belated birthday Cynthia!! Don't worry, you're still a baby in my book ;).

I can imagine how frustrating it must be to not have your computer. I could never post on my phone. For some reason I can even log into my account on my phone. Weird.

Please don't be a stranger. Take a break, but not for long, ok?

I hope You had a great Birthday with lots of unhealthy things to eat :-)

I hope the computer problems can be solved without costing too much! I know how it is to try writing via the phone :-)

Have a great day!

Thanks so much for the birthday wishes!
It's so nice to see you back in blog world.
You are so right about age not effecting Art or Art work.
Thank God.
I try not to think how quickly time is flashing by
and yet there are days I find myself just wishing to be older and retired.
I need to live in the moment!
Thanks again!

Cynthia Myers said...

Thank you!
It suddenly occurred to me that I have no idea of your age.
Oh well, it's just a number!
and Yes, I've been busy and hope to reveal some work soon!
Thanks again!

Cynthia Myers said...

Thanks for the birthday wishes!
I'm still not on my computer
I'm answering these comments from work while on a "break".
:D :D :D
I hope to be back soon!

Cynthia Myers said...

I think I'm accomplishing some of the things on my list
but rest has not been one of them.
Soon though!

Cynthia Myers said...

I hope you get your computer up and running.
I've noticed that you haven't posted in a while.
I'm still using the work computer and it's been so busy that I haven't even tried to use my phone for posts, etc.
Hopefully we will both be back in blogland soon!

Cynthia Myers said...

Leslie! LOL!

I'm hoping 38? Hahahahahahaha!
thanks for the birthday wishes!

Cynthia Myers said...

Thanks for the birthday wishes.
I did eat unhealthy things!
(and I haven't stopped.)
Oh well!
Yes, computer problems are driving me nuts.
I'm only using the work computer today to catch up on comments.
and my phone for Facebook.

Howdy Stranger!
I haven't really been celebrating this one...
except by eating junk.
Yes, need to stop THAT.
Thanks for the birthday wishes!
