To have courage for whatever comes in life —
everything lies in that.
— St. Teresa of Avila
Happy birthday to the most courageous man I know,
who faces both triumph and challenge with the same indomitable spirit,
who refuses to be anything other than who he is no matter what,
and whose dazzling example of hard work, loving oneself,
and always finding sheer joy simply in living life
is a daily inspiration to people around the world
Wishing you every happiness, every success,
and every dream come true
in the coming year.
with love always from Binky
I make a lot of mistakes, I work too hard at times and have a lot of sleepless nights but it’s all worth it because life is pretty amazing.

В этот день родился американский фигурист, любимец российской публики, трехкратный чемпион США в одиночном катании Джонни Вейр, который известен благодаря артистизму и причудливым костюмам. Вейр считает себя русофилом и восхищается русской школой фигурного катания и культурой России. Также фигурист коллекционирует Чебурашек. Фото: Екатерина Чеснокова/РИА Новости. #ДжонниВейр #JohnnyWeir

A peek at Johnny’s birthday in Japan, which apparently involved dancing, a mountain, and a funky train…
My love of Tomáš knows no bounds.
