My Scorpio Birthday

I was born today November 10 1974 in Jackson Mississippi

my favorite color is blue
my children are:
Dakota Wolf, 15
Ian Oliver, 12
Lola Moon, 7
we want one more (from my mouth to God's ears)
my husband is Mr. Curry
i live in San Diego California
i am a poet and a novelist,
writing my second novel Agitate My Heart
i love Milk Duds and dry champagne
i love wild mustangs, travel, wild places,
old houses, books, eccentrics, science, owls, the miniature workings of Earth
and illustrations of vegetables.
i love dirt in my toes (when I was little I ate a lot of dirt)
i would describe myself as
neurotic, deeply loyal, playful, ridiculous, passionate, curious, a fighter, fearful, stubborn
intellectually involved and spiritually motivated, open minded and weird.
what matters to me most of all is Love
and it's daily expression in action and small devotions.
i love Barack Obama.
my favorite poet is Sylvia Plath
for her unparalleled evocations of the inner world of a soul in pain
with metaphors as plenty and ripe and bursting as plums or breastfeeding nipples.
i love to listen to Oprah and Howard Stern.
i am irreverent and profoundly grateful, both.
the best friend i have ever had in my life is my husband,
Mr. Curry.
he is my soulmate.

i am very similar to my Scorpio sign
except i do not hold grudges deeply for long times.
i am not easily angered
and am quick to shrug off things that should be shrugged off


i love to blog.
thank you so much for offering me this exchange.
i love you.
(yes, you.)

Happy birthday Scorpio girl. I'll look up to the sting in that tail tonight and tell it what you want for your birthday. I look up to that star sign most nights while hanging out the washing. I love that it arcs across our southern skies.

That one girl said...

Happy Birthday!!!!!

SJ said...

We love you back! Happy Birthday!!

Brandi said...

Happy Birthday! You should have said you're a brilliant writer and poet, because you are. I don't always leave comments but I always read what you do and am always impressed. Enjoy your special day!

And I love you back...for all the wonderful and beautiful and ridiculous and hilarious ways that you are exactly the person you were always meant to be.

Happy birthday Maggie May :)

Kim Nelson said...

You, Maggie Mae, are clearly generous of spirit. Thank you.

Laura Lee said...

wonderful! Another Scorpio! Such common threads, and yet you go on to describe your unique little you, showing how different we STILL are... all the chaos and beauty too.

Cid said...

Happy birthday, Maggie. May the coming year bring you everything you wish for.

Alix said...

We are the same.
Line for line.



{Except for the Barak Obama part}


And I love you too. Thank you so much for sharing all that lovely personal jewelry. And happy Birthday!!!

Word verification: "Cries" as in... My heart cries when it reads your beautiful posts. XO

Happy Birthday! I loved reading all the facts about you. And for some reason, I just learned that you have written a novel - so now I must go out and find it immediately.

starrlife said...

Happy Birthday Maggie May! My sister was born today too! I have so many planets in my 8th house I could be an honorary Scorpio! You are so bold and vivid and open- it has been a pleasure to meet you! I need to read your books!

Laura said...

Happy Birthday! Hope you have a great one and that you get your wish. I'm sure He's listening (especially on your birthday). :)

Lacey said...

My favorite poet is Sylvia Plath also. :-)

What a beautiful and eloquent tribute to your own life. Happy Happy Birthday, and thank you for being born - your words are a blessing in my own life!
(p.s. and I hope you don't mind if I borrow your theme for my own birthday in a few weeks....)

Laura said...

I hope you have a wonderful birthday Maggie!

Annie said...

Happy Birthday, Maggie. May the coming year bring you all good things. You deserve them! Thank you for your love. It shows in everything you write.

Kristin Dodge said...

Happy birthday, sister Scorpio! It's my birthday today, too. How funny that you posted on my blog today... and I came back to yours and saw this post.

I wrote this: I say no to birthdays and yes to birth weeks. Let the celebration last a while. Be grateful for what time teaches us. Eat a lot of cake and drink champagne. Make this your "new year." Thank the stars for precious things we cannot buy, like health, amazing friends, love in all of its forms.

Simply Mel said...

The Earth became a better place the day you entered it's atmosphere! Thank you for sharing your soul, your words, your love for all things weird, raw, beautiful, and brilliant! Happy Birthday to one sensational Scorpio!

Happy Birthday! It's funny--neurotic and loyal would be at the top of my list of self-description as well. But I'm a Taurus, not a Scorpio. I hope this is year is your best yet.

Your list is inspiring me to do a similar type of thing, thanks. In fact you are always inspiring me to do awesome things!

Ruth said...

Happy birthday! I, too, am a Scorpio. I rather like being a Scorpio, don't you?

I love that you call yourself "intellectually involved and spiritually motivated, open minded and weird." I love that you compliment Sylvia Plath's metaphors with a metaphor (she's a favorite of mine as well). This is a fabulous post!
