Tomorrow marks the birthday of sorceress of storytelling, JK Rowling. As a member of the lucky Harry Potter generation, Jo’s books have been a big part of my life since Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone first graced the UK’s bookshelves. As my family will attest, my obsession with the world of Harry Potter remains a dominant life theme and I don’t think that this is something I will ever shake. Anything I say here, in honour of the woman who brought us so much, will be utterly inadequate. But I’m sure that many of us share a desire to add our voices to tomorrow’s birthday wishes. So, we’ll just say thanks JK. Only you could have made round spectacles so cool (well, you and John Lennon).
(I know I’ve posted this video before. But no homage to JK Rowling would be complete without it).
