General25,933 days, 878 lunar cycles, 71 years, on Earth ... and "It's my Birthday, and I can cry if I want to" ! [modified] PinprofessionalBillWoodruff2-Sep-14 18:06 
In 1963, when Lesley Gore's Song "It's My Party, and I Can Cry If I Want To" topped the charts for two weeks [^], this miscreant youth (age 19~20) had run away from the parents, and Duke University, and the "WASP hi-so lifestyle engineering" he was being programmed with ... towards the end of ending up some kind of executive somewhere with a strained marriage, too many rugrats (kids), house full of the latest electric appliances, hemorrhoids, mortgage, heart problems ... burning his bridges behind him, and started work as an editorial assistant for the Journal of Geophysical Research.
 
All that seems about as significant as this fly that just landed on my notebook, and took off.
 
Well: what is significant, then ?
 
This moment ! ... ?
 
But, "this moment" just passed, never to return.
 
Selah, Om Shanti, İnşallah, Amen, Tat Tvam Asi, Gate Gate Paragate Parasamgate Bodhi Svaha ... etc., etc.
 
cheers, Bill
