Brian Douglas Wilson turns 73 years old today. Happy Birthday, Sailor. Sail on. Brian’s navigation skills saved him from wicked waters on many occasions. The sea of life is often turbulent. We must persevere to reach calm waters. Sail On, Sailor (1973), by the Beach Boys, is a joy to listen to. It inspires me when I steer the helm. It’s a nice song to play while eating a slice of German chocolate cake in honor of a musical genius’s birthday. Hear for yourself.
