You get that feeling of anticipation. You’re well into double digits but the few days surrounding your birthday are exciting, tremulous and full of unexplored possibilities. Whether it’s a homebody’s delight of a day with family, a dinner with friends, or some frolicking in the garden, it’s a moment where we stop. We clasp the simple things, the inexplicably incredible, everyday things that we sometimes overlook. We realise we are truly lucky, truly wealthy, truly loved.

And so we breast the cusp, not clasping past memories, but fully present, aware, alive.

That’s why I love birthdays.
