Maxim 11th birthday morning

Happy Birthday, Maxim

Live beyond your income,
Travel for enjoyment,
Follow your own nose.

  1. Maxim,

    It looks like we share a birthday! Good advice from W. H. Auden – enjoy life to the fullest (although don’t live beyond your income!)

    Hope to see you soon – you look grown into a young man since we last saw you.
