Today would have been Glenn's 70th birthday. It's hard to wrap one's head around that.

70 is the age that, to me at least, is when a person officially hits the "old" category.

They may not act old or feel old. The headspace is certainly more important that any number. In all the meaningful ways, they may not be old. If they're really lucky, they may not even look old. However, strictly in terms of age... when they have to check the box that says 70-79 on forms, they have hit the old folks category.

And Glenn never made it there.

I'll be thinking about him a lot today, and I won't be the only one. There will be people thinking of him today especially around the globe. He affected so many with his music.

As we do, we all have to remember the lyrics of that prescient song, "It's Your World Now," and its admonition of "No tears allowed." We must focus on celebrating his life.

So, let's make it a happy 70th birthday, for Glenn.
