Today was somewhat of a struggle. It was a friend's birthday today. Happy birthday Jaya! I desperately wanted to buy her something. Even though, I know she completely digs my year without buying anything. It's just so foreign to not buy a person you really care about a present. It's one more buying tradition that the retail world has conditioned us to feel necessary.

Well, I'm not falling for it!

Happy Birthday Jaya! You are a great friend and I treasure you. Thanks for all your support and advice. Although, we have only known each other for a short time, I hope we can stay close until the kids are old and having kids of their own!

  1. Thank you, my dear friend. I have the same hope. Your words are the best possible present. Also your time--the time you spent with me on my birthday, even though taken up with my shopping, was a great pleasure to me, and one of the nicest parts of my birthday. You are a very generous person. Your experiment is an inspiration to me.
