Thursday will be my birthday. I shall be 26 years old.

To celebrate, Andrew and I will attend a Boston Symphony concert to be conducted by Bernard Haitink. It will be my first concert lead by the Dutch master.

Before the concert, we will eat hamburgers at a Ruby Tuesday outlet (an odd birthday dinner, I know, but my choice—I like Ruby Tuesday hamburgers, and Andrew and I have not eaten hamburgers in ages, and I have a powerful taste for a good hamburger with lettuce, onion, tomato and bacon).

I am a very lucky guy. Everyone important to me is very good to me.

I can’t ask for anything more than that.


  1. Warmest birthday wishes from both of us. You will be in our hearts and minds tomorrow. We are pleased you have something fun planned. Enjoy your special day.


  2. Happy Birthday, guy!

    Hamburgers? You've got to be kidding.
