Brunch, Billiards and Best Friends
“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
Jas and I in Athens, Greece in October 2008
Yesterday Jason celebrated his 30th Birthday. For weeks I had been pestering him with questions about this big day. Was he was looking forward to turning 20-10, was he content with where his life was, would he do anything different…? His responses were levelheaded and reasonable, although this should have been no surprise to me since he has always been so sensible. I am fortunate to have him by my side.
He and I are both blessed to have a few great friends who planned a small, intimate birthday celebration for a milestone that Jason gracefully embraced. My best friend planned the whole day starting with a fabulous Saturday morning brunch that she prepared with new born baby in tow (yes, she’s a rock star). Since the weather was less than perfect, golfing turned into billiards for the boys and Surekha and I spent the day and evening lounging about with baby Charlie. The evening ended at 1am with homemade vegan chili and 3 guys sleeping in the living room. Boys will always be boys, regardless of how old they get.
