Today is my birthday. I'm 41. They say life begins at 40 so I'm saying 41 is the new 40. I made a few comments last year about turning 40 in this post. The feelings are pretty much the same. Turning 41 just doesn't much matter.

I did want to say that I'm always caught by my birthday being in print or hearing someone say it. "The committee meeting on whether it's a creek or a stream will be held this Monday, February 9th at 7pm". My immediate thought is 'that's my birthday'. I guess maybe everybody feels a little strange when they see their birthday somewhere. But today is my special day. A day just for me. A day that I share with, on average, one out of every 365 people on earth.
