I know there was mucho big news today, but in my world, equally big news is today is my birthday. I turned 56 years old. Happy to say my buddy Dave Jacobs is still here, occupying space on this planet. He's one year behind me, born two days later. It's fun to celebrate similar birthdays. And Tal Safran, an NYU compsci student (unless he graduated?) is a perfect match. He and I were born on the same day, many years apart.
I gave up Facebook, but just this once I posted a thank you for all the good birthday wishes. Many from people I haven't heard from in a long time and all of whom I hope to see sooooon. From all over the world, on every continent. What a world we live in.
Back in 1998 I figured I could write a dancing tutorial, many people thought it wouldn't be possible, but I still believe it is. If you're feeling funky today, but not in a dancing mood, this little essay, written to the tune of the Neville Brothers' classic -- Hey Pocky Way -- not only is good for dancing, but I find it's good for curing the blues. Check it out.
