HAPPY BIRTHDAY GLORIA DULAN-WILSON!!!
By Gloria Dulan-Wilson
And we're Back!
It's Aries time! Yaaay!
Aries in the house - oh yeah! Celebrate good times - come on!
I am so stoked to be here on this crazy, mixed up ball of dirt we all call earth, and "I still standing"! (you should really listen to Israel Houghton and New Breed do that song, or the Lakewood Choir - they're fantastic).
And I admit I really had a tough 2011 - glad I won't see that one again.
I am definitely looking to a much better, brighter, happier, healthier, powerful, loving, successful, prosperous 2012, 2013 2014, 2014 through 2045. No more lack, loss, limitation.
As a rule, I absolutely love birthdays - mine especially, but everybody else's as well. If we don't celebrate ourselves, why should anyone else want to?
Gotta love you 'cause God didn't make no junk. So, I will be celebrating me during the rest of March, starting this very second, right on through and up to Taurus - April 22 (?).
I've also come to the realization and understanding that I have the great good fortune to be blessed with some of the most beautiful friends in the world. I have had an opportunity to witness that over and over. I am saying right here and right now: Thanks for being my friends, and I truly hope I can reciprocate whenever you need me, as well.
To my Oklahoma Homies - we've been friends from Kindergarten through today - that's truly special and most amazing. Wow!
For my family, especially my Mom, Ruby Love Dulan, wow! I have to make sure that I'm keeping up with the gene pool, because my mother, now age 89, is one remarkable lady. And to my brothers Warner and Sylvester and sister Brenda - I love you each and all.
For the Love of my Life - thank you for being kool, crazy, wise, sentimental, fun, talented, spiritual, Tall, Dark & Chocolate, concerned, creative, smart, generous, music, knowledgeable and the consummate night owl.
Of course to my own little set of Africa/Jamaica-Baysha-manians, Kira, Rais & Adiya you are each precious, special and smart to me. Thanks for being my kids - and thanks for the beautiful grands Jahzara, Akili, Hugh 5, Jaden and Kijani, as well.
Now I know the weather has changed the vernal equinox from March 21, to March 20; but we Aries who were born before a certain period, still recognize the original. So as far as I am concerned, my birthday is still on the First Day of Spring.
Time to break out the bright colors and light shoes, and let the sun shine in.
You keep me writing and trying to get it right for all of us. We are beautiful Black people on a major journey. We've got so many talents, skills, abilities that we are blessed with that we can pool and consolidate, and create our own fabulous planet. I am so glad I'm Black (and Indian). Nothing against the rest of the homo sapiens, we each have our own set of God's given gifts. But we seem to have the transformative power, when we really apply it, to make worlds, bring energy, heat, light and elegance to the scene. And I love that.
I am open and receptive to all the good there is manifesting right here and right now. And play for all of you are a part of it.
It's my birthday. I'm going to find a huge chunk of German Sweet Chocolate Cake and enjoy it.
Stay Blessed &
PS: In lieu of gifts & cards, Money would be most appreciated.
MuyGracias, Arigato, Thanks! GDW
