" a birthday before all else "

---

celebrate!

birthday times come around whenever you most and least expect it. has it been a whole year? did i accomplish all that i set out to accomplish? did i make a difference in the world for being in it?

most obviously a time for reflection and reevaluation, gaining a year on your tree of life is another annual treat (other than new year's) where we have the opportunity to take a moment. really take a moment to see if we are living our lives to the fullest, right up to the brim, cup runneth over.

so whether it is your birthday or a friends...or a strangers, celebrate celebrate celebrate! it has been and continues to be an absolute pleasure to have you here with us, and i very much look forward to everything you will do in the time which follows and continues to evolve.

HBD.
