30th Birthday

So, 30 years old today (April 21st).

I'm a bit busy these days (see previous post) so I don't have time to write one of my usual long rambling birthday blogs. Despite this being "The Big One".

Actually these big number birthdays you can see coming from such a long way away, that by the time they actually arrive there's not much left to say. Good-bye youth. Hello middle age. et cetera. (Besides, to the extent that the readership of this blog is made up mostly of old school friends, most of you are around the same age anyway).

So, I'll just make the announcement with out comment.

In the meantime, if anyone is feeling nostolgic, here's some past birthday blogging.
and, if we're counting retrospections, 23rd Birthday

My 30s were a hoot, and I hope yours will be too. Happy b-day, man.

Happy birthday, Joel! Birthdays in Japan just kind of pass by without much hubbub, don'tcha think? It's probably better that way. There's no need to think about our age as a number :) There's some quote by someone (obviously I forget who) that says something like, "You only grow old when you start thinking that you are."
