Happy 100th Birthday, Mr. Cage!

Today would have been John Cage’s 100th birthday. I threw a Birthday Bash on Monday in celebration and it was loads of fun.

We had cake,


four orange, three blue, and three silver

toy musical instruments,


goodie bags,

and a performance of 4’33”,

along with a heartfelt rendition of The Andrews Sisters’ hit “Happy Birthday”, conducted by a four-year-old.

As we were eating our cake and going through the goodie bags (with a random assortment of toy musical instrument, astronaut, dinosaur bubbles, and world map slinky), the balloons untethered themselves and wafted off above the trees – a fitting end to a tribute to a seriously whimsical soul.
