The human race is indeed an optimistic specie… The occurrence of a birthday every year is a grim reminder to an adult that he is one year elder and older, no doubt…. but simultaneously he is one year closer to the only certainty in his Life… Death…

But then he cares not…He celebrates… Not only he, his friends and relatives celebrate too…. the degree of celebration varies….from sobriety to insane chill outs…

I for one always have this undercurrent of doubt… Are we laughing to hide our fears… If all laugh collectively, then perhaps the grim reminder can be masked … by a B’day reminder….

Or Perhaps…..

We are living “dead” almost the entire year and the b’day becomes an Occasion to “Live”…Live Wildly, Live Madly… Live Alive…

Either ways, the human race is indeed the “Optimist”….
