July 1st, 2010


A time of mystery, of possibilities...of new beginnings.

It's just turned midnight on the East Coast and while one could argue that I was born in Chicago and that I still have another hour, it's my birthday so nanny nanny boo boo...

Happy Birthday to me.

I'm not sure what the next year will bring. So many things have happened during the last couple of months (more about that maybe later today...kinda zoning right now) that I have to wrap my mind around.

The things I know are these: I'm (gulp) 54 and not likely to get younger, I've gone back to school to get a degree in Visual Media that will hopefully let me work in the TV/Film field in some small way, I have 2 great kids who are making their way in their respective fields, and I have to deal with the fallout of 2 aged parents who refused to plan for and acknowledge the future. This last will impact every aspect of my life from now into the foreseeable future.

Are there challenges? Yes. Is it scary? hell, yes! Is it exciting? Beyond words.

Happy New Year.
