    Sister Starry!!
    The awesome readings you find and share here are a constant source of joy and enlightenment for me.

    If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    Then stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

    If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
    And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
    Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
    And, which is more… You'll be a Man, my son.


    This poem by Kipling is nothing short of amazing.
    That you've given this to me on my birthday is priceless.
    Thank you so much for your kind words, and for giving me a chance to shed some tears of joy.

    Ahhhhhh, hi there small.wonder!! Thank you so much for these wonderful well wishes, and kind, supportive words! I am so glad we've had a chance to talk and share life perspectives on recent events. You surely came out of nowhere, and have just blown my mind with how well you're able to integrate book-smarts with life experience and so casually deliver the best of both in such a direct, clear and sincere way. Thank you so much for your friendship and for giving me such great advice - I'm very thankful for you!!

    I kinda imagine newborn Halla on his original birthday to be nearly identical in looks and disposition to baby Hercules haha.
    In the spirit of full disclosure, I cannot take credit for looking like Baby Hercules.

    My beginnings were much more humble, like most ESTP 7w8 Sx/So male children - please see below:



    By age 3 I was defiantly standing with my arms crossed, in my underwear, and uttering my favorite expression: "You can't conquer me."



    By age 5 I knew that Adidas track suits were the preferred garb of modern barbarian children...



    And thus - photographic evidence of my true, humble beginnings is above for the truth of the people.

    I hope so! All I know is that I've been having fun chasing them throughout the house all day!

    If I could fly you all to Las Vegas right now we'd be having one hell of a party in short order. Believe it!!



    Thank you so much my dear friends!!

    Happy 40th dude! Remember you're always young at heart, just another milestone to indicate your sheer resilience. One of the genuinely coolest people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing.

    Thank you very much, Brother Wolfy! You are a good friend, you given me so much guidance about so many things over the years. I swear your brain is like freaking nuclear-good-idea factory!
    I appreciate you very much, and grateful for your presence in my life. We will climb Mount Fuji one day, and drink much Sake afterward. Have a great day, Sir!!

    I will always be young at heart; I was not built to be jaded.
    Your mention of resilience is a good one.
    I have some goals set for this year that if properly executed will reduce my physiological age by almost a decade.
    For the most part I live a very clean lifestyle, but I've been busy for awhile, and found comfort in good food and drink as 7s often do.
    At 25 my body incinerated the calories. At 40 I have to bust my ass just to break even.
    In a few days I will be going on a Paleo + Cyclic Ketogenic Diet, and doubling my cardiovascular work at the gym.
    Resilience of mind and resilience of body are the closest things we have to the fountain of youth.
    Thank you for keeping my thoughts where they need to be, Chandler.

    WOW. Thank you very much, Bro. That goes both ways. You are WAY smarter about life and more self aware than I ever was at your age.
    Thank you for being so cool and good natured. It's always great to hear from you.

    Have fun!
