Well in spite of Spring being ever so close but still out of reach in this part of the world, and Downton Abbey fading into memory, today is a good day since it is my birthday. My milestone birthday was last year so this year is a return to a low key affair of dinner out with Lord D at our favorite seafood restaurant, and a month full of coffee and lunching with friends I haven’t seen in a long while, particularly those who are also March babies.
And what would a birthday be without some reflection? Of course I think that only happens as you age, as I remember I would dread my mother asking me every year about any words of wisdom I had with the passage of time. I was young and looking forward, not so much behind. Then miraculously your perspective changes and yes, parents seem to gain wisdom as we get older.
