Celebrate every day

I'm by no way aging myself when I tell you that I was surprised to learn from @AARP that Tom Jones celebrated his 72nd birthday last week.

Because my parents were concertgoers, I was lucky enough to see him several times, at different ages and venues.  The last time was with my mom at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas; so when I heard about Tom's celebration, I had a quiet celebration of my own for the birthdays that I didn't get to have with her.

As a bonus, when we saw him in 1987, he looked, moved and enthralled the audience just he does in the video I've chosen today. Plus, at Caesars, many of the ladies were tossing their room keys on stage. Wishes, memories and legends: all true.

I hope you enjoy Tom Jones, live at London's Hammersmith Odeon, 1989 singing "It's Not Unusual" for Music Sunday at Experience Optimism. And will do me a favor, please? Celebrate every day like it's your birthday for every day is precious.
