The One I Love

Today is my Best Beloved's birthday. He is wonderful. He is kind and loving, he is intelligent, inventive, creative, careful, and unrelenting when there's a problem to be solved.

His sense of humor is frightening, alluring, off-putting, wondrous, sophisticated, sophomoric, and sideways. If people get his humor, I know we will be friends.

He is one of the most intelligent men I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. He re-reads Godel Escher Bach regularly; he re-reads Cordwainer Smith once a year or so. Both of those things he does because he finds something new in the books every time he does it.He forces me to think hard when we're debating, and he likes exercising his own mind when we get into conversations.

He is musical. He introduced me to jazz and taught me that there is no musical genre that does not have music worth listening to and treasuring. When I think of him, I always think of music.

He is handsome, knows how to fill out a suit most impressively, still looks good in a tee and jeans, and is the only man I know who looks good even in a beard.

He is unbelievably strong, even though I don't think he believes he is; he's weathered ailments, heartbreak, bad craziness, the unknown and the terrifyingly known, and come out on the other side.

There is no one on this earth to who I am as happy to wish a happy birthday. Happy birthday, [personal profile] buckaroobob ; happy birthday, [ profile] dr_whuh!

Happy, happy birthday, my beloved BB.

Hmm. I could never get through the Hofstadter book simply because I view the maths of music in a different way from that of the author and that's a basic off-putter. But ALL THE POINTS IN THE WORLD for the yearly Cordwainer Smith! Hope his natal day was a good one this year :-)

Gosh. I haven't seen Bob is so very long. Every time I do, he brightens my life. Please convey my wishes for many returns of the day.

I don't envy you; I love my own loves. But I rejoice in the light of your love for him, and him for you. The reflection is fine and bright.

Cordwainer Smith? Gods, I should have know. I _love_Cordwainer Smith.
