There are certain events that we use to demarcate time like the rising and setting of the sun, the changing of the season, and today, for me, the day of our birth. Yup, it is my birthday and I feel no different today than I did yesterday or the day before but we still celebrate and it is nice to get notes and calls from family and friends with their well-wishes. The funny thing is that when I am asked my age I have to think about it, age is such an arbitrary thing, it give very little insight into a person's qualities so I often disregard it as unimportant. It is a strange thing to measure but we like to quantify everything and everyone so I suppose it makes sense in a reductive sort of way.
Oh well, you can tell I am getting older because I am rambling. Thanks for indulging me in this post and all the others that have come before and the countless posts yet to come...
