may 3rd

where has the week gone?
it was just saturday
when i last checked in here
gone in a blink
wait a minute...
come to think of it
where has the last 40 years gone?
it's my birthday today
not the one you look forward to
but i actually feel great
not depressed
because love is all around me
and that's what matters most
the power went out last night
and jayme and i watched das boot
on the laptop
in the dark
german version
it was eerie
and tense
waiting for them to go down
or for the lights to shoot on
today i'm glad i'm not on a submarine
in the atlantic
in the second world war
waiting for the depth charges
to blow our stinky sweaty tube to bits
i'm also grateful that i'm not in iraq
or any of the other horrible places i could be

we've got a good life here
i feel very lucky
and today i'm going to go out with my family
(and later on...friends)
and enjoy it
do some shopping
eat at my favorite places
have some fun
take it easy...

it's good to be alive
isn't it?

love you all,

old man time - salim

Haven't had access to the internet more frequently than a few sporadic, short bursts lately, so didn't see that it was your birthday. Nonetheless, happy belated birthday, Salim!

Very nice thoughts. 40 years. It's when I first think I started learning a little about life. YOu are a blessed man, beautiful family, respect of your peers, pursuing your passion. A fortunate man indeed. It's been a blessing to cross your path.
