So here it is .. today is really my big birthday. Hip-hip-hooray! (and something such as Homer Simpson’s doh! as well! ). As astronaut John Glenn said : ‘for all the advances in medicine, there is still no cure for the common birthday’. So celebrate it! – celebrate life – and don’t look back too much ! But looking back today, I am very grateful for what life has given me, and I look forward to a whole lot more. Thanks to everyone for the heartfelt wishes I have gotten so far*, in person and by e-mail! love and hugs, Willem.
*I’m in China, so ahead of just about everyone I know, time-zone wise.
