For Thee 40 (Live at a 40th birthday celebration in Maplewood, New Jersey) June 23 2012
Under 40? I've been there. I can relate.
Especially to when you're that adult age and all those old head wise tale sayings start ringing true no matter how much you knew that they weren't speaking to you.
"I got this," is the way we're supposed to feel. We need courage to be courageous to do what we dream.
"I get this," is where you arrive when you cross the threshold into 40.
"Life Begins At Forty!" they so proudly proclaim.
The one's that smile when they say that are the ones who look at 40 as an achievement and a pivot. At 40 I looked back and saw what worked for me and what didn't work for me and I choose to proceed, keeping my best and leaving behind any way, thing or habit that can keep me from going places.
Then, it's like your path is clearer of clutter...and you can just, walk...with your eyes up and looking forward.
Here's my own little (I'm 40something and been around long enough to notice enough to have an opinion from experience) axiom:

The coolest old people have young spirits."

Thank you to NW, CW and the family. This was a great party where I did a medley of some of the classics from my live sets while also including the birthday girl's request. There was some top 40 and 90s Hip Hop and stuff later on....this is the welcome to the party set.
