Dear Garrison, Has being in

November 16, 2005 |

Dear Garrison,

Has being in your very late forties, combined with your heart procedure, given you perspective that you wish you had when you were, say, about to turn 47? My 47th is on November 17th, and I don't want to wait or be cut into to get smarter or calmer or more insightful. I'm ready. You can give it to me straight. I can take it...

Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you. Happy birthday, dear Ed. Happy birthday to you. Try to stay off the operating table. Walk a lot. Walk more than I do. Much more. When you get there, if you find what you're looking for, be happy, and if you remember what it was, come and tell me. What was the question?
