53rd Birthday in San Francisco

Hello from San Francisco and the intersection of Geary and Larkin. I wake up tomorrow, the good Lord willing, and I will be 53 years old and I hope before the day is out to be standing at the foot of the giant Sequoia trees more than 2000 years old. Nuff said.

Birthday presents to myself belatedly will be Fantastic 4 and Spiderman 3 (note I did say I was 53 and still have my 1960s originals of those comic books). And I will then commit myself to trying not to act like a superhero but to embrace the blessings of imperfection and my God-given finitude. End.
