There are so many people whose birthdays I've missed recently that I am in hearty disapproval of myself. I intend to catch up on many of them, because so many of you are such lovely people - so damned interesting, kind, creative, and memorable. I am privileged to know all of you.
Today, I want to wish the happiest of birthdays to two delightful members of my f'list: a_phoenixdragon , and editrx , both of whom I met through our shared love of the Whoniverse. Please forgive my late wishes today. (At least today, I can plead technical cast-related difficulties, rather than my usual tardiness.)
a_phoenixdragon radiates not only all those aforementioned qualities, her dedication to family, sense of humor, love of democracy and natural affection towards friends across the globe just blazes through what she writes, whether that's posting about her life, responding with thoughtful comments and hugs to others' posts, or writing memorably strong and poetic fic. Her writerly vision.can be dark, but it can also be filled with the brightest glimpses of hope, and rich with a sophisticated understanding of the human heart. I've had the pleasure of meeting her in person, and of having lively phone and Google hangout conversations. I consider myself lucky to have met her, and I hope today provided some joy, some well-deserved love from the family that you care for so well. And cake. You need to have cake! All my love, my dear!
I have had the privilege of benefiting from one of the skills that editrx has in spades, one amply noted by her online name. She is careful and helpful, with suggestions and questions that certainly made the writing she was able to review for much better than it had been before she reviewed it. She also approaches life with as much humor and determination as possible. She hasn't been around much lately, and I know things have been difficult for her, to put it mildly. I hope that her birthday marks a time free of stress and pain, and full of as much joy as possible.
