Plus Ça Change (Happy Birthday to Me)

Thirty-five years ago today, a very young man arrived early - ten weeks early, in fact. (He almost didn't make it.)

He was impatient, stubborn and a little fixated. And, in time: inflexible, self-obsessed, over-confident.

But fascinated with words. And with a pen in his hand, his vices became - sometimes, briefly, unreliably - virtues.

Plus ça change.

Hope you have a lovely day, folks - I know I will.

Happy birthday, Day ... I'll join you on 35 in a few months, so feel free to scout out the terrain and let me know what it looks like.

That guy in your post sounds just like you, it's uncanny ...

The above fore-mentioned. said...
