Happy Birthday, Baby!

Please click on music to listen.  The mushy stuff's below the music clip!

(Youtube clip from here.  Thank you)

It's unthinkable for me to let Stephen's birthday go by without putting up a post.  After all, this blog is my space, my world, my kingdom and my domain.  Stephen is in every inch of it and so very much a part of all I do and say.  

We are different, I don't deny it. 

He likes country music.  I prefer the rhythm and blues.

He is adventurous with food.  I am picky and fussy about it.

He's happy with his wardrobe.  I'm happy expanding mine.

And the list goes on, but he loves me and I love him.
In the end, that's all that matters

Happy Birthday, Baby!  The song is dedicated to you.  
On your special day, I just want to say "Baby, I'm a want you!"

Happy Birthday Stephen! Here's something from Kahlil Gibran for you and Lita, which you both are already living examples:

Marriage (extracted from THE PROPHET):

You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore.

You shall be together when white wings of death scatter your days.

Aye, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.

But let there be spaces in your togetherness,

And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.

Love one another but make not a bond of love:

Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.

Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup.

Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.

Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,

Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.

Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.

For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.

And stand together, yet not too near together:

For the pillars of the temple stand apart,

And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.

Hi Tiger!

That's really beautiful. I hadn't seen it before. It's my first reading and I had to read it a second time just because it was so delicious!

Thanks, buddy! Big hug for you! :D

"The Prophet" is a "bible" I have used for years.


The writing is so simple yet meaningful.

Happy birthday, Stephen!

And let me add something that I like, from the same author:

Love has no desire but to fulfill itself. To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving.

~ Kahlil Gibran

Pat dear,

Stephen says "Thanks". He loves that picture of himself which was taken a couple of months ago. It was a feat for a group of them to get to the summit of Bukit Timah.

Needless to say, it has been a good day filled with so much love and laughter.

Kisses for you! :D
