Celebrating a birthday

January 8, 2011


Today was the birthday.

Of the community I live in.

With mixed feelings.

As Bilbo. Liking half half as well as I should.

And less than half half as well as they deserve.

But it’s home.

And its paths and orchards wrap round me.

I wish those within it more kindness. And patience.  Less judgment.

For not all those who dwell here wish the other well.

But still all are bound by threads and connections.

 Of this place.

And come together to sing.
