I share a birthday with a 366 year old nudist (Maria Sibylla Merian: Naturalist’s 366th birthday celebrated with a Google doodle).
I am 44. I will not have two number 4s in my age again for at least 100 years.
I have a lot of great friends.
I am glad I no longer hide my birthday from people – it is selfish to keep all my happiness bottled up.
When Constance asked what I wanted to do on my birthday, I said, “nothing.” Seriously, if I die doing nothing, people will say, “he died doing what he loved.”
I have the best family in the world.
Constance now looks yet another year younger than me.
As Greg might have said, one more year and I’ll be closer to 50 than 40!
