Celebrating my birthday with much gratitude for everyone that has been and will be a part of my "Dash". For those who are not familiar with the poem, it is based on that little line on a tombstone, between the dates of birth and death. Every day we spend on earth is ultimately represented in that little “dash.” Live Your Dash by Linda Ellis: via @YouTube

I think that I shall never see a poem lovely as a tree. A tree whose hungry mouth is prest against the sweet earth's flowing breast; A tree that looks at God all day, and lifts her leafy arms to pray; A tree that may in summer wear a nest of robins in her hair; Upon whose bosom snow has lain; Who intimately lives with rain. Poems are made by fools like me, But only God can make a tree. —Joyce Kilmer 1886-1918
