Three-Oh

Today is my thirtieth birthday on the Narakan calendar (tomorrow on the Gregorian). It's kinda anticlimatic, actually. Just another day.

I had someone tell me recently that I look like I'm 26 years old, but act much older. I think I've been acting over thirty for many years now.

Today is, of course, also the Holy Day of Píríuso, the God of the Sun, which makes me want to quote from a Bruce Springsteen song that Manfred Mann's Earth Band popularized:

Mama always told me not to look into the eyes of the sun
But Mama, that's where the fun is

Some brimstone baritone anticyclone rolling stone preacher from the East
Says, "Dethrone the dictaphone. Hit it in its funnybone. That's where they expect it least."


Okay, maybe only the first part of that was relevant. . .
