“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
So out with the old and in with new
By keeping my sights in a broadened view
Time can warp a mind into worrisome channels
Dimming the lights at the end of the tunnels
Please let me grow older without being confused
And, let me be useful without being used
Growing older can be quite a scare
If you wait too long to show you care
For me, a birthday is drawing near
Which I will welcome without fear
Of years gone by I prefer not to dwell
My numbered years I shall not tell
So out with the old and in with the new
Keeps me young from my point of view
June 17th, being my birthday, is the 168th day of the year, leaving 197 days until the end of the year. Those lucky enough to be born in June have three birthstones!
The pearl which is the only gem of living sea creatures and require no faceting or polishing to reveal its natural beauty.
The Alexandrite, an extremely rare chrysoberyl with chameleon-like qualities. Its color is a lovely green in both daylight and fluorescent light; it changes color to a purplish red in incandescent light.
The third stone is Moonstone. A phenomenal gemstone, moonstones show a floating play of light (called adularescence) and sometimes show either a multi-rayed star or a cat’s eye.
The zodiac sign for June is Gemini – June May 21 to June 20. Those bearing the Gemini zodiac are incredibly flexible people who can adapt to almost any situation. They also possess a tenacity that not only enables them to rise above major setbacks but to take full advantage of negative situations as well. Inherently curious, Geminis are also experts at unraveling mysteries of any sort.
