Self Portrait - Birthday

Self Portrait
September 2010

Today is my birthday. Some creative people have birthday rituals; they paint a self portrait or make a self portrait doll or a scroll of the last 12 months or write in a birthday book, but I won't do any of these things. My ritual is to gather family around me and have a little love fest. I'll go to church, then to my favorite cafe for brunch with my husband, maybe spend a few hours in my studio and garden, and then meet my family for a burger. It'll be fun, low key and so good to be with family and friends that I love. What could be better?

Perhaps shooting a self portrait will be part of my future birthday ritual. Or maybe I'll make a birthday card that I can copy to send to friends on their birthdays. Hmmm, that's a good idea.

Do you have birthday rituals?

  1. Happy Birthday Jo! Sounds like the best of days to me. In fact that is pretty much how I spend my B-Days too.

  10. You lovely friends! You helped make my day. My son-in-law made a blackberry cobbler for me... all his idea. He even picked the berries. Am I blessed or what?
