"I have wrapped my laughter like a birthday gift / And left it beside your bed..." Hafiz

The New Year has started with a bang - in more ways than one, I guess, with all the new-old violence flaring up again - I've been lucky enough to be partying it up with friends old and new, good music, good food, good conversation...and this is what I've felt all week, that gifts of laughter and presence are like birthday gifts wrapped up beautifully for me to share. k8 and I each told the same story about 5 times with different friend groups this weekend, but it didn't matter, it was still funny. That's the best kind of friend, right there.
