 A Birthday Wish

Happy birthday yesterday to 
[personal profile] strannik01  who is, like me, a Chicago community journalist. He works much harder than me, combing the city's neighborhoods for stories, and does an excellent job doing so. He knows the neighborhoods he patrols, and he understands community journalism, which makes it a joy to talk to him about the business. Since he knows my situation, we can also talk about that, and you have no idea how much that helps on bad days. 

He's also a fan - how lucky am I to know someone who shares my twin obsession? 

He has a sense of humor - in two languages, no less! And he is a gentle, generous, and loving soul. I hope his birthday went well, and that the rest of this year is twice as good as he hopes, and only a quarter as bad as he fears.

He is. I'm hoping to get together with him sometime next week - for the first time in 3D, believe it or not!
