My trusty sources, The Writers Almanac and Coudal Partners, tell me that today is poet Mary Oliver’s birthday (there’s a nice poem from her about being seventy at the top of the page) and pointed me to a post about “micro-poems” that would translate well to Twitter. That post containted this Mexican proverb:

Cada quien puede hacer de sus calzones un palote

“Anyone is entitled to make a kite out of his pants.”

So let’s just all ponder that today.
