The Library

Wednesday, December 30, 2009: Today is my birthday and I miss having someone come over and kiss me and hug me. I miss having a party, a get together or a celebration on this day, this very day. I remember my childhood and the people who used to come and wish me well. I know many years have gone by since then and that I should be grown up about it and use the stiff upper lip method. But I can’t. I walked the streets of Brooklyn and Manhattan this afternoon because I felt lost. My birthday is being spent at the library, looking at the computer monitor. Walking helped me unwind and the empty feeling, while still there, is not too loud. At least not now.
