What an excellent day that was!  Actually, I reckon every day one spends on the correct side of the earth-air interface is an excellent day; and I’ve just clocked up another 365 of them.  Yep, it’s a bloke’s birthday today.

You know what I enjoy most about my birthday?  It’s feeling the earth rotate.

My birthday started with well-wishes just after midnight from some night-owls and early risers on the other side of the planet.  Then as the sun rose over Australia, the Aussies started up.  A little later the Asians then Europeans chimed in, followed later by my friends in North and South America.

E-mails, tweets, Facebook wall posts, phone calls, text messages, even snail-mail cards; they came from everywhere.  “Happy Birthday“, “Bon Anniversaire“, “Feliz Anivers├írio“.  One needs no better demonstration of how small our planet is and how inter-connected we all are than to experience the birthday I’ve just enjoyed.

Thank you all; I’ve been privileged.

Mike

PS
And if I wasn’t already a winner, one of those snail-mail birthday cards was from one of my sisters.  It contained a scratchie.  I’ve won $12 on top of all today’s joy.
