happy birthday to me

We interrupt this retroactive travel diary to wish me a happy birthday.

I have been alive on this planet for 57 years. I am now, as they say, "pushing 60". Not sure how that happened, but I'm feeling pretty lucky to be here, alive and kicking.

My life is full of love, meaning, and challenge. I'm not struggling financially and am up for new adventures. In my book, this means I have it all.

This is one of my favorite birthday posts! I am so glad you are so happy and that your "life is full of love, meaning, and challenge!" Again, Marty and I wish you a very happy birthday! Love you!

Happy birthday to you, Laura. I can honestly say that even though we started out as online friends and met in person only twice, our friendship has been deeply enriching. You opened my eyes in ways that I could not have imagined when we met by chance 14 some years ago. You played no small role in my newfound love for baseball, NYC, and even left wing politics! Will be thinking of you when I am in NYC two weeks from now.

David, thank you for saying this. I'm truly honoured.

(And also envious of your upcoming trip!)

Happy (belated) birthday!

Please enjoy a random internet gif of an elephant saving a turtle by encouraging it to get off the road
