For blubeagle's birthday

Playing on the radio as I start this: Queen’s “Radio Ga-Ga”:

You’re the female me.
I’m like the male you.
Two dudes, much alike
With good internet-fu.
We have rhymes in our lives
– Parallels that surprise –
Me walking on a path
You wheeling (exercise!)
And those paths double-helixed
(I won’t say just “converged”)
So that a shared understanding
Led to friendship…now verge’d
On the changes, amazing,
You’ve reached in your world:
Your marriage to Jerry
And your writing, be-pearled;
These will grow from here
In substance and luster
A good life, a good love,
All as good as you’ll muster.

Happy birthday, blubeagle. I’m so glad I know you, and I’m so glad for your happiness.

Your friend,

Edited To Add: blubeagle was good enough to repost this poem to her journal.

That worked out well. I knew it would play, in fact: the radio station I listen to plays a themed set each morning called "The Eight At Eight," and Monday's theme was songs about radio. It ended with "Radio Ga-Ga" (by the way, probably the first Queen song I ever heard, except maybe for the theme to Flash Gordon). And the station replays that set at 5 the next morning. It reached "Radio Ga-Ga" right before I opened a Word document for the poem.

I should write this in legalese:

WHEREAS the person referred to as blubeagle is Much With The Awesome, and

WHEREAS blubeagle deserves to repost the birthday poem written by her friend chris_walsh, and

WHEREAS it's good to let blubeagle have what she wants (and who she wants; just ask blusfrog,

I hereby grant blubeagle the right to make this poem reappear on her LiveJournal.

That official enough for you? :-P

(That's a loving "Thhhppptttt!," by the way.)

    I am glad you exist and that you're choosing to blog!

    Maybe not feeling poetic is a poetic state all its own?

    Try to capture that feeling - I think that will be reflective of many folks'…

    I think I should wait until I have something better to brag about.

    I think it's okay to talk about your life, if you have something you want to share, even if you are doing well.
