Today is the birthday of one of the most influential people I've ever known. She is thirty-three years old today, or as she would say, she is in her thirty-fourth year.

Today is a day that was very important to me once, but no longer holds meaning. Nonetheless, I still have my 1967 quarter on my keychain.

There are 138 days left in the year. There is a lifetime of remembrance.

Happy birthday to you.
