happy orbit

Lately, I've been thinking about birthdays a bit differently. A birthday (or anniversary or any special event for that matter) is like a point along the orbital path of the Earth. As the Earth spins around the Sun, it approaches and travels through these points. And we, on our little blue ball, celebrate (or reflect or mourn or acknowledge).

They are like rendezvous. Appointments in time. Along the way.
