By the sea
To each of you, your birthday wishes touch me more than you could ever likely realize and they're SO much appreciated. My sincere thanks to each of you.
The flowers were SUCH a surprise. I can't even begin to tell you how BIG the smile on my face was when they arrived!! They are absolutely gorgeous, my friend, as are you, Mister Toe and the little ones.
My heartfelt thanks to each of you. I know I've been away, but it's not something I could help, as some of you already know. I promise that I'll be back when I'm able. I so miss each of you and so miss my only home on the web. I love you, I do, each of you. You're my family.
The stars will shine when I am gone,
the earth will turn on as before,
the gulls, still race along the shore,
the morning star, still kiss the dawn
