It is my birthday today, I am 38. Ouch! In two years time, I will be 40. The thirties are going sharp and fast. I still remember when I turned 30, it feels like yesterday. But I shouldn't complain: for my mother, this birthday and my age comes even more like a shock. She told me yesterday: "Sometimes it feels like you were going to turn 8 only yesterday." I said: "This yesterday was 30 years ago." A fatalist line, but a great unknown line nevertheless. I will look at it at the bright side: I still have two years of relative youth to live and I am being spoiled today.
