On Turning 40 and Other Revelations
“I felt the stone of myself move aside.” That’s a great sentence, Jeff. Wishing you a belated happy 40th. It seems apropos that it rained. For rain reflects renewal, and I sense that in you and your work. You may have receded from the algorithms and posting treadmills, but I believe great things lie ahead with your work. Here’s to the next decade of creative expression.
Happy birthday, Jeff! A poem is such a great way to commemorate the occasion.
Reminds me of the opening to Sgt Peppers. “It was 40 years ago today...”
Great piece, Jeff. Heartfelt writing. Thanks!
We share a birthday. Though I’m a tad older. Happy birthday.
I love this poem. The imagery is beautiful and strong. Happy Birthday.
Cute poem. Good job.
Wonderous & wonderful. Make a wish..... (For some of us, 40 has been the new 18 LOL)
An impactful piece--Happy Birthday Jeff!!
Belated Happy Birthday! Welcome to your forties; it's been my favourite decade so far.
This is beautiful. This has inspired me to write about the rain today.
Happy belated, Jeff. One of my favorite lines is, “Smelling the musty scent of future things already passed;” Wow. It makes you stop and reread, think on it, read it again, and wonder.
Happy day for you.
Lovely. Happy Birthday....Angel leaves and angelic babies....glad you are here.
