What a wonderful thing it is to pause, today, and think of you. That is a very good thing about your birthday, when at least some of your fellow passengers on Planet Earth can pause, smile, and thank you for making your time among us a good thing. That is so for you have employed yourself in fashioning works of noteworthy creativity, that have drawn informed notice and substantiated respect for the pains you took to produce them; for your praiseworthy courage in sharing them with us at the risk of cruel or thoughtless criticism. Today, may you notice only praise and respect in celebrating your existence. I, also, celebrate that and sincerely and earnestly wish you a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
