My treasured assistant, Joya, is off visiting Kaua’i with her family this week (last week, too) and I miss her. It is wonderful how your life can change when someone enters it who is good at doing what you’re not good at.
I had a beautiful birthday. I went for training at the gym in the early morning, just like every Wednesday, and then treated myself and my daughter Adair to a “Day of Beauty” at the Dorit-Baxter Salon on 57th Street. (Adair’s birthday is on the 29th, and favor similar celebrating.) I love facials and massages and the like, so I left feeling like mush, but healthy, beautiful mush! That evening, we went to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, Candle 79, with family and a few friends. It was restful and sweet, a time to sit and exhale.
I actually love birthdays (see below) since they’re the day we’re allowed to remember that we’re magnificent. Even the enlarging number of each year doesn’t bother me much. If I don’t feel it (which I don’t), it doesn’t seem to amount to much.
Happy buds and flowers and showers and spring stuff!
Happy week, all!
My very best,Victoria Moran
