It was my birthday yesterday and the first time I experienced the many many wishes from facebook friends around the world.
Wishes in many different languages, with many nice words and from people I haven’t seen in years or have never met at all.
It is nice to be remembered and to get so many nice posts.
I think about the years we didn’t have the social media and this immediate and cheap way to communicate around the world.
I also think about the discussions if social media bring us closer together or drive us further apart..
Whatever it is, to be remembered and to celebrate your birthday with friends and family is a wonderful experience and something to remember for the next 12 months..
I wish everybody to be with lovely company on their birthdays and as the Greeks say (who usually celebrate namedays rather than birthdays): with more white hair and wisdom as years go by…
