Two Because They’re So Good

Today is my birthday! In 1963 I came out to see what was happening, and a great deal has since then. I got educated, moved across country twice, changed careers, got married, and more. Wow!

The other day I heard the song “1999” by Prince, and I recalled how far away that year seemed when the song was released in 1982. It was so portentous, and the song was nihilistic, about partying as the world ended (it seemed so back then!). How laughably mundane it is now.

First, a little humor:

Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest.

–Larry Lorenzoni

And now a metaphor:

Our birthdays are feathers in the broad wing of time.

–Jean Paul Richter

I’ll be attending a friends’ wedding this evening. Fun all around!

The best birthdays are the ones your find yourself alive to experience.
