The Counting of Years

One of the fun things about blogging is, like The Queen, one can celebrate two birthdays a year. Blog Birthday and Real Rirthday.
Today is Real Birthday.

'But what did the counting of years mean if he felt himself young in his soul, as he had been twenty years ago? Was it not youth, the feeling he experienced now, when, coming out to the edge of the wood again from the other side, he saw in the bright light of the sun's slanting rays Varenka's graceful figure, in a yellow dress and with her basket , walking with a light step past the trunk of an old birch...' Leo Tolstoy Anna Karenina


  1. Happy Birthday Rachel!!! Hope you have the loveliest day, and a wonderful year to come!! =)

  2. Hope you had a really wonderful birthday that's managing to keep going over the weekend!

  3. Dear Verity, hiphip and Tonia, Thank you for your kind comments. One of the many advantages of being a twin is the ability to celebrate and re celebrate ones birthday.

  4. Hope you had a very happy birthday Rachel ... and that it didn't lead to (yet another) hangover! Just kidding!
