Alice is vexed at the idea of an unbirthday.
Even though I’ve been already been a historical archaeological site for ten years, it feels different, somehow, to have made it to 60.
In the astronomy and astrophysics academy, your colleagues organize a special symposium when you reach your seventh decade.
British monarchs have (albeit rarely) celebrated their 60th year on the throne with a Diamond Jubilee, as was the case with H.R.H. Queen Elizabeth II in anno domini MMXII.
I’m celebrating today [even though I’m disinclined to believe it’s happening] because in the past ten months I’ve unexpectedly rekindled and cemented friendships that I made along the way, AND, through happenstance, become acquainted with a gratifyingly large number of new friends and kindred spirits.
So, dear friends, charge your glasses and join me in a toast…to better days and happy endings!
