You say it's your birthday

Dawn light came up late,
went down early. Tomorrow
makes seventy-one.
~Jules Siegel

My dear friend Jules Siegel is celebrating another trip around the sun, as Elisson would say. Jules is an astounding guy. He's an incredibly articulate, relentlessly observant and intelligent writer . They probably invented the phrase "thinking outside the box" just for him.

Click over and check out his websites, maybe buy one of his books. They're all well worth the pittance he charges but don't start one unless you have time to read it through, because you'll never be able to put them down. He brings new meaning to the phrase, "riveting prose."

And if you're planning a trip to Cancun, he's been living there for decades and wrote the essential guide to the real Mexico. It's only five bucks for the on-line version and you'll save that many times over if you follow his travel tips. It would make a great gift for a friend who travels.

Happy birthday Jules. Mi casa es su casa, siempre and my world would be very empty without you in it. Saludos.
