Promised myself years ago I would be someplace cool doing something that stirs emotion on my birthday. I have woke to a sunrise in the desert of Death Valley, watched a Bald Eagle teach her offspring how it is to be an incredible raptor on the Mississippi river. Just a few of many. And today ? -5 degrees F. Linton, North Dakota. -20 F tonight. Staying in and dinner and movie with my favorite dog. Happy Birthday to me !
