Haha, I hope to be the first to post greetings for the prolific, pastoral, fun-loving, and classy Paul, a.k.a. the Byzigenous Buddhapalian, formerly of the San Francisco Bay Area, currently of Albuquerque, temporarily in New Orleans. Happy Birthday, friend! May blessings shower upon you and may some of them taste like champagne and others smell like honeysuckle and a few sound like Vivaldi.
And how lovely to have a birthday on the feast of Julian of Norwich!
