Many Happy Returns of the Day – An essay by Ellis Parker Butler

Reading of this essay by Ellis Parker Butler (1869-1937), written in the 1920s. Butler, with humorous anecdotes and observations, promotes the idea that as we age, we need not fear or dread our birthdays but rather can form a mindset of celebration. Written close to a century ago, it remains relevant and timely. Pam Kress-Dunn, facilitator.
