March 3rd is my birthday. Traditionally I spend the day alone, taking a long hike or bike ride and meditating on the year past and the year to come; this year I wanted to share the day with Jon -- at least part of it -- while still keeping some continuity with tradition. In the morning, undaunted by weather, I rowed in steady cold rain to Midden Bay, beached the dink and set off, glad of my raingear, on a leisurely walk around the island.
