Your total years on this Big Blue Marble may be a secret, but the beauty and inspiration you’ve given us for lo these many years are well-known — and equally immeasurable.

We wish you a most-splendid day… and please know that every one of us has been inspired by your and Anne’s beautiful lives. May the strength of Volcan be with you on this day and many years to come! And…if you care to…Help us surprise James with funds for THE HUBBELL ARCHIVE PROJECT. We know he’ll be very appreciative.   >> You can make your gift here

Leave a birthday message for James below. We’ll present them to him on October 23rd with a card containing all your birthday greetings. And don’t forget, shhhh…it’s a surprise!

The above photo was taken a year ago after the performance of “Queen Calafia’s Pilgrimage” when students from Spencer Valley School unfurled a “Happy Birthday” banner for James.

    Among the trees and sky, colors change with every step.
    The moment receives the wonder, humility, gratitude……….
    The expansiveness continues, life’s unfolding in front of us……. alongside us… around us, above us, below….
    This is too grand to make this, Nature, the Divine did it just right.

    Joyful, elated and in awe…… there lands a sense of peace and ease…….
    Sitting into the refrain of needing to make this encompassing beauty that surrounds us.
    It is here, we are here………..
    Resting, breathing……….
    Life is beautiful. The Divine is smiling with us.
    From this place, life’s song is sung
    And life’s dance begun.

    Hi Jim,

    In these crazy times, I guess this is how we have a party – online. Have a great birthday and I hope to get out there soon to see you and Anne.

    Happy Birthday Jim. Your work is AMAZING. My family and I flipped through the 4 walls coloring book. It was super great and creative. Left me wondering what the inspiration was. I am currently coloring the one with the man sitting on the creature with the rain cloud. Have a great day🍀

    Happy Birthday James: the collector of ideas, beauty, touch, empathy, sound and goodness; the giver of ideas, beauty, touch, empathy, sound and goodness. Another year; another giving and another receiving.
