Sperando che tu abbia ricevuto il regalo in tempo, oggi è il 15 Ottobre 2018! Il tuo 25° compleanno!

Mi ha sempre affascinata questo compleanno. Mi da l’impressione di essere in una specie di limbo, per quanto riguarda l’età. Né troppo giovane, né troppo vecchia. Né troppo presto, né troppo tardi. L’età perfetta per chiudere delle porte e aprirne di nuove.

E il 25 è un numero così perfetto che non potevo lasciare nulla al caso, quindi… Per questo tuo compleanno ci sarà anche Shakespeare a farti gli auguri, con il tuo nuovo libro e 25 meravigliose frasi del nostro (Mio, tuo e di Tom) poeta preferito!
