I'm slightly confused by the cards and Facebook messages that are coming today referring to 'age'. It may be my birthday, but I've been doing these things for a while, and I'd like to make a small but significant adjustment to the general thinking on these matters.

Birthdays are in fact celebrations of youth, not age.

For if this day marks a significant moment, it is not the accrual of years: the thing that I have learned with every passing celebration is -

Today I am younger than I ever will be.

I intend to enjoy this.

Happy Birthday Ryan Giggs, by the way.
