I had written a confession of my Big Doubt about the nature of God in the face of Parkinson’s, but tonight is the birthday of the world, so I’ll leave that post for another time. Tonight I have No Doubt about the wonderfulness of beets from the farmer’s market, peanut chicken cooked in the slow cooker, songs from the 1950s, and my family.
Happy Birthday, world.
