Another year, another birthday. When I was a kid I thought thirty was so old - and in any event, so far off that I couldn't even conceptualize it. Now I'm thirty-two...officially a thirty-something. I don't think of it as old or young. It's just a number.
I'm really looking forward to this year. I know it will be a good one. For the last few years on my birthday I've been thinking about what I've accomplished in the past, what I'm not doing, what I should be doing better...I tend to be hard on myself even on my birthday. I'm not doing that anymore. I'm telling 31 the same thing I said to 2008 - "beat it, bozo!" I decided that 2009 is going to be a year of positive thinking. There is too much going on right now within me and in the world to have another day, another BIRTH-day, where I'm reflecting on yesterday. Yesterday only matters in the sense that I'm going to use what I learned to be better tomorrow. No? This year I'm thinking about today. It's good. I like it.
So...without further ado, Happy Birthday to me! I'm having dinner and lots of good wine with my family tonight at one of my favorite restaurants in New York and this weekend I'm having a fabulous joint-birthday dinner with a dear friend and 20 of our closest.
Oh happy day!
Today's soundtrack is inspired by this photograph taken in Argentina and one of my favorite artists of all time.
