Happy Birthday Mr. Beckett

Were he still alive, Samuel Beckett would be 111 today. Since his death, the world has become more absurd, perhaps more than even he could have imagined.

We’ll have to forge ahead without him. But not without his works, nor without celebrating his great efforts to bring them to us.

A toast to him and his everlasting contribution to our greater good and understanding. They have elevated the better angels of our nature.
