Happy 98th birthday Betty White

Waking up to another day. At some point, we become accutely mindful that old age means the train will soon be arriving.

Happy 98th birthday Betty White.

Betty turned 98 January 17, 2020, yesterday.

So here she is, today, beginning her 99th year.

Guessing that every evening she wonders if she’ll see the light of day.

Guessing every day she wonders if she’ll get to lay her head on a soft pillow in the evening.

Perhaps that’s the paradox of 98 – there’s no doubt you only have a handful, at best, years left.

At 60, 70, 80, we can easily think, “At least another decade or two.”

Happy birthday WED

Cool tee-shirt design.

Happy birthday WED.

What?

Walter Elias Disney.

Never gets old.

What?

The juxtaposition between today when this is written and later, when this is published.

The time delay is a unique contrast to reality.

It’s a wildly creative way to be present in a single moment multiple times.

Yesterday December 4, i was focused on the publish date, February 4.

Today, i’m focused on today December 5, 2019.

Life fascinates me because so much of what we can do isn’t dependent on any tradition or current standard.

Happy birthday CAN

Tee-shirt design at Magic Kingdom’s Emporium on Main Street. Peace, Love, and Minnie Mouse.
Two nights ago at Disney’s Magic Kingdom.
Cheryl and Minnie are synonymous in my mind.

The best is yet to come.

Happy birthday.

We have come to know the true meaning of our birthday when we learn to celebrate it every day.

Things I Learned Yesterday

Madonna and Mike turn 60

Mike at his surprise 60th birthday party last night. Madonna (left) turned 60 last year.

Madonna and Mike turn 60.

Such a privilege to reach 60.

Old is always someone older than you.

Because of this phenomenon, at 60 i don’t feel old. High schoolers, however, have to look at 60 as ancient.

And so it goes.

How old do you feel?

Take care of yourself.

The long way is the shortcut.

Final 120 Days

Unbelievable Glacier National Park karma

Team Disney Building, also know as Corporate HQ at Walt Disney World.

Unbelievable Glacier National Park karma yesterday at 6am.

Mario, the Madrid airport car service driver yesterday was exceptionally courteous for so early in the morning.

This was a sign to a fellow morning person to engage in robust conversation at such an early hour.

When i asked him if he’d ever been to the United States he said, “Yes, Glacier National Park.”

i shouted, “Shut up!

We talked about his visit (he has a friend who worked there last Summer) and then i told him, “i’m heading there tomorrow”.

Today is yesterday’s tomorrow, so in six hours Chapin and i are Glacier bound.

What are the odds to be in a Madrid cab and have this timing?
