Today I sent two gifts to Australia, one to my brother-in-law who will be seventy soon, and one to my sister who also celebrated a birthday a while ago. The first verse is for my sister and the second for my brother-in-law.



Whatever day you think of me,

So  far away across the sea,

Raise a glass and drink a toast,

To one who loves you more than most.

To: B


Those meditations through the years

have brought you insight, calmed your fears.

You know the blinding truth at seventy –

The unexamined life is empty!
