Birthday

Consider this, "The Four Ages of Man," from Yeats:

He with body waged a fight,
But body won; it walks upright.

Then he struggled with the heart;
Innocence and peace depart.

Then he struggled with the mind;
His proud heart he left behind.

Now his wars on God begin;
At stroke of midnight God shall win.

I hope your birthday has been a happy one.

I join Kate in wishing you the best.

I note that another "birthday" is coming fast - 55 years an American in the United States.

Happy Birthday, Peter.
