Soixante-six

Today is my 66th birthday. I had thought to acknowledge it by posting what would be some, undoubtedly, drab numerical graphic, or the left-hand side of a set of engorged quotation marks (& would spend the next 33 years wondering if I would make it to the other side).

Then I thought of all the talented people I know & whose work I love. If I'd had several months to do it in, this post might have ended up being 66 (or 99) ways of looking at 66. But I only got the idea late last week, just enough time for a quick email to a few whom I consider nearest & dearest.

So, below, offerings from three much-loved-by-me members of my extended electronic family.




Sheila E. Murphy: Happy 66



Geof Huth: 66



Márton Koppány: Ellipsis No. 12 — for Mark Young


Thanks, guys. A big hug from the bottom half of the world.
