Description:


I'll tell you their really isn't enough regulation on this whole wisdom/year thing. Honestly, I swear I used to get a good 1:1 rate on that shit, now it feels more like a 1:4 and it just keeps getting worse the older I get. I've got ten years on you but I'll bet you'll have me matched or beat in another ten.

Anyway, Happy birthday kid, I hope you enjoy it.


One day older, One year wiser.



A moment
A minute
A year
Not so different from the one before
the same seven days repeating.

Do you feel any different
any older, any stronger
any bolder
I never did
In the moment
On the day.

But even still, the days will change, the weeks and the months and the years as well.

Every night your mind steeps in the collecting pool of your experience.

It creeps up slowly
in the warm bright days
and the clear brisk nights.

The leaves will fall and fuel the fires of your growing heart.

You won't feel it or see it just yet.
One day you might.
When you find yourself moving forward with ever increasing speed toward the inevitable uncertainty.
You may know then
The weight and the value of these days.
