A Bowl of Strawberries and A Birthday Wish

Today, June 14th, is the natal anniversary of a dear friend. Hello, friend!

Happy Natal Day, Friend!
While I'm bummed I'm not able to deliver  in person, I want to wish you all the best and a bowl of strawberries too. I know they're your favorite!

Neither of us is given bon mots nor sentimentality, but there's just something about these strawberries that makes me think of you today. I hope you'll find some strawberries on your end.

Strawberries can be frozen, freeze dried, and you can get them off season. But it's never the same experience.

So a bowl of strawberries is just like a good friend. Thank you for sharing some time and space on this blue planet of ours. It turns out that it was fortuitous that I didn't play well with other children, and had plenty of time to go for long walks and study maps. It afforded me humility and made a good introduction when we did meet. How long ago was that now?

I'll look forward to seeing you soon. But in the meantime, can we enjoy some strawberries and celebrate with a toast?

Hope so.
