“Something Awesome Happened On The Day You Were Born… You!!! Happy Birthday.”
“Happy Birthday Son, You Have Good Looks, You Have Charm, You Have Style… …it must run in this family, Happy Birthday.”

Okay, Merry Christmas, gift card splurge at the bookstore, bought a calendar and books.
Okay, you may not like what I bought, but I highly recommend them all. Just reading this is good enough.
I got the ‘Insight from the Dalai Lama 2019 Calendar.
I also bought some philosophy books.
Okay, if you don’t read anymore, be sure to pick up something from your local bookstore.
I love philosophy: Socrates, Epictetus, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Meditation, and Gratefulness.
I could tell you all the sorted details, but just let me say, I have lots of reading to occupy me for the foreseeable future.
Books come in all shapes and sizes,Books are never finished, Books are meant to be read again, and again
