Let's Try To Do This Mostly In Pictures

Zinnia gathering. Love. 

It's this man's birthday.

He is 72 years old today and if you are as old as I am, he changed your life and your world whether you know it or not.

In fact, if you're younger than I am, he still changed your world and you probably have no idea. 
Genderblending, masculinity-redefining, and now- age-defying. 
Happy Birthday, Mick. 
You ain't no Keith Richards but you sure are Mick Jagger and together, you and he inspired more dancing than probably anyone on earth. Which is a real good thing. 

And those lips. Oh my god. Those lips. 

Allison- for you.


Ants in the sugar.

I was looking at this picture on my phone and all of a sudden, one of the ants started moving. 
Whoa! It was an ant on my phone. It's that bad. 

If you click on this, you can see the incredibly intricate web of the banana spider, glowing in the setting sun. 

I got to talk to my oldest friend today on the phone. We talked for at least an hour and a half and we discussed everything from chemo-therapy to radiation to grandchildren to husbands to how toilets are designed. 
It was a serious/hysterical/pragmatic/ beautiful conversation. 

And I talked to my Lis who is recovering from a setback she had when she tried to do two gigs last weekend. 

"What are you doing for your birthday?" she asked. 
"Talking to you on the phone," I said. 

Sixty-One. What a stupid birthday. In your sixties but not old enough to qualify for Medicare. 

Love...Ms. Moon


  1. Well, Mary.....if today is indeed your Birthday, you have been mum about it! Keep flowing from one day to another and as long as light and love are in your heart (I KNOW they are), all is well. Happy Birthday to you, and thank you for sharing and being who you are. I am happy to know and enjoy your grace and love
    birthday love
    Susan M

  2. Thanks for the picture of Elvira.

  3. Birdie- Oh god. True.

    Susan M- Not until Tuesday do I officially become sixty one.
    Oh god.

    Allison- You are SO welcome!

  4. Yeah, the number 61 is a bit "meh." I'm turning 52 in August which is quite boring as well. But I do love birthdays, and if I lived nearby I'd drop a cake off early.

    That picture of Mick Jagger is so beautiful, even though he's really not. He's like a fantastic creature, though.

  5. Well dear Ms Moon, just in case I read this correctly: Happy happy happy birthday.

  6. Wishing you a very happy 61st birthday! And those magnifying mirrors lie! You do NOT look 61.

  7. Magnifying mirrors are a godsend when you're tweezing, but otherwise they're the devil's handiwork...

    And early Happy Birthday! I hope you are wined and dined, or at least beered and cheered :)

  8. Happy birthday, in advance if I don't get to your blog tomorrow when I will be in the air!

    I must say I never found Mick attractive in the least -- but as Elizabeth said he IS a fantastic creature.

  9. Happy birthday moon woman. You are not just the moon but the stars and the sun, too. We are all glad you are here. Lovelovelove

  10. In case I miss you tomorrow...
