Giving Away

I'm still in the process of giving away 50 things to celebrate my 50th birthday. (Read original article). 39 things have gone.

I've enjoyed many delicious moments in the process, and so, apparently, have the generous receivers. Several people have told me they want to do the same for their birthdays.

Sometimes there has been an exuberant feeling, like flinging confetti into the air. Sometimes it has been very tender, seeing someone else's dear hands cherishing an object I was no longer really seeing, like this egg I'd decorated on the theme of Hexagram 3 of the I Ching--Difficulty at the Beginning.
