You know, for the past fifteen years or so, I haven't wanted to celebrate my birthday. I've felt that this is not a day that people should be celebrating because of me, certainly not out of a sense of obligation or a feeling that I am something grand, and that birthdays are pretty arbitrary as human markers go. I just realized, though, that I do want to celebrate my birthday this year, just because I really like life and I think it's neat to be alive. Huh.
