Well thought out, with warmth, love, friendship. Birthdays are the most important day for anyone...only on this particular day, appeared for the first time in the whole universe, a person called Tara(inser your own name, now) , never has been, or will be, another Tara. No other day, or holiday, is as important for a person! Good, good, good! xxElysabeth

Way to go, Alison! ! I raise my coffee mug in toast to Tara, Alison and all the rest in our poetic community.
Careful with that dogma, my karma might hit it .
