Another revolution around the sun, VC.
Another milestone. Another year on walking this planet.
Another year obsessing about all the things that you do. Another year living in that fully committed single-mindedly focused way that you do.
Another year of simultaneously infuriating me with our polar opposites and softening me with our fundamental likeness.
Another year of inconveniencing me with unnecessarily heavy luggage all for another year of stunning pictures and memories from our travels.
And yet, I suspect this year will be a touch different. So as you step into the new, I wish for you a year of just enough surprise of magic and just enough comforting familiarity. A balance of enough challenges and the right amount of easy wins, too. A year of flow and ease, peppered with opportunities to stretch yourself. I wish for solidity and harmony as you continue to take life by the horns and grow from strength to strength like you have this past year.
Something tells me you have only just begun.
Happy birthday, old man :D
