Larry Page: “You know what it’s like to wake up in the middle of the night with a vivid dream? And you know that if you don’t have a pencil and pad by the bed, it will be completely gone by the next morning. Sometimes it’s important to wake up and stop dreaming. When a really great dream shows up, grab it.”

43, between The Answer and The Master

Thursday, April 23rd, 2015

Today is ‘the’ day of the year where one day is making me a whole year older…aahhh it’s my Birthdayayayay! 🙂

I am turning 43 and it seems to be an ‘in-between’ year; last year at 42 I was the answer to The Utimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything and I will apparently become The Master Healer at 44, next year wowWoW! 🙂

Oh well, age is mostly just a number as ‘they’ say (indeed an expression that is used by ‘older’ people 🙂 ), so I’d rather enjoy every minute of Now! 😛

Find the number 8 in the ‘9s’ picture below and let me know how fast (or slow) you did! It should definitely be done within the minute (take a visit to an optician if you didn’t! 🙂 ).

Oh, and to put on some extra pressure; it took me less than 2 seconds! 😉
