My birthday is right around the corner so naturally I turned directly to February 22nd in the Year of the Horse calendar we got as a parting gift from our waitress at the new fraiche Vietnamese restaurant near our home in Culver City. I’m not sure if this is a ‘fortune’ for those born on 2/22, but sheesh, what a message:
Ardently doing one’s duty today for - who knows? - tomorrow death may come. There is no bargaining with Death and his mighty horde. 
I’ve already been pondering death a lot more lately - since isn’t understanding death really about learning how to live a full, satisfying life? - so this seems right on target for me personally, but it is a bit more doom and gloom than one want to consider as a birthday message. 
Happy (almost) birthday to me!
