Let the Celebration Begin!

Oh, sure, you think I'm talking about the amazing events in Washington DC! The whole world anticipates great things there.

But nope, I guess mine is a smaller celebration. Today is my birthday. It's an insignificant one that precedes one of the big landmarks. I turned 49 today. How did that happen? It seems like only yesterday that I was on the road to being an exotic dancer (that's my 8x10 glossy above, with my astonished sister Jen). Instead, I followed a more straight and narrow path.

I feel this is a year of big things. Fine tuning the direction of things to come. Taking care of some grown-up business, like writing a will. Any volunteers to take in dogs, cats and chickens in the event of??? I'll make it worth your while! Time to remind myself of my priorities, reducing distractions and maintaining focus.

All of my life, I've felt that there was so much time to come. At 50 one has to recognize that a good deal of it is already past, and it's time to take action on those dreams that have fermented all these years.

Anticipate big things, sooner rather than later!

Great picture! I anticipate sharing some great adventures this year. 49 is fine but let us be fabulous at 50, and beyond.

Maybe when I'm 50 I'll rememeber my password.
