Happy birthday my dear friend blslarner !
May this day be full of love, joy, sunshine, flowers and butterflies in your stomach.
Even we became friends just recently I've found a quote that reminds me of you.
Writing is not like painting where you add. It is not what you put on the canvas that the reader sees.
Writing is more like a sculpture where you remove, you eliminate in order to make the work visible.
Even those pages you remove ... somehow remain.
You're a wonderful writer, dear. The words you eliminate are as important as the words one can read between the lines. Your stories have this special invisible sensible kind of words. I'm so looking forward reading more of you, it's a wonderful chance to get to know you better.
Enjoy your special day!
Love and hugs,
