There was something important that was happening today...what...was...it? Oh yeah. It's my birthday!
It's 8:30 in the morning. Sam and I are packing up the canoe to head to Chatanika. I've only cried once so far this morning.
Some jackass hillbillies were shooting off fireworks until about 3a.m. I can't understand the appeal, especially when it's not dark here, so you can't see the freakin' things anyway! Soon after the fireworks started going off, Bully started pacing. He eventually came upstairs and shook with fright beside the bed. Soon after that, the phone rang. A lovely friend from Ontario got the time difference mixed up and rang me for a happy birthday wake-up call at 4 a.m. My parents and Gran called at 6:30. I got up at 7:30. Now it's 8:30. Off to the river with Sam and Rich. Peace. Thanks for the birthday calls and greetings. I'm 30 now and trying desperately to hold it together. Float trip should be nice.

An overall sense of emotional equilibrium keeps you on track in the year ahead. You are generally well-received and popular. Your romantic and/or social life may be complicated at times but ultimately very rewarding. Although you may be forced into accepting some realities, the end result is a stronger sense of self-worth and commitment. Relationship challenges become apparent, and you have the tools to iron out differences. This is a strong year for new mental pursuits, learning, growth-oriented connections, and travel.
