While I was gone I celebrated another trip around the sun. I’m old enough to know that I don’t want to waste any time grousing over the fact that I’m older. It happens. If we are fortunate we get older. It’s like I told someone the other day – getting older is 1 part suckage and 2 parts freedom. Not a bad ratio. Now that I’m thinking about it though, I’d change that to 1 part suckage, 2 parts freedom, 2 parts wiser, 1 part realizing this is your life so stop dinking around, and 3 parts being kinder to yourself and others. A pretty darn good ratio! Hello 49.
