Today, December 21st, is my birthday.
On this day, 48 years ago, at approximately 10:20 to 10:40 a.m. on a Saturday morning in 1963, I was born.
Appropriately, this is the darkest day of the year, the winter solstice…the day when the earth is farthest from the sun. Fitting.
Next year, my birthday brings the world to an end.
Next year, gifts aren’t necessary.
