You were so busy living life, you didn’t keep track of the years flying by. No one offered the advice that 60 would be here some day. As the train whistle blew, coming down the track, getting closer, though, you knew. You knew that there was no going back, that each day was precious, that life was not a dress rehearsal.
You started handing out that advice to younger people: Don’t fret over what will happen, enjoy what is happening. Do more, see more. Don’t wait until you’re…Continue

Tuesday afternoon, someone said, "You're a study in self-denial."
The woman began to weep, in spite of herself, pressing her lips together, taking her gaze toward the ceiling and away from the face of her friend. She questioned herself aloud, "Why have I always denied myself what I want? No one has ever said that I can't have things."
Pondering her own question, she awakened from sleep the following day and realized she hadn't recently asked herself what she wanted,…Continue

Well, it’s here. It’s finally arrived, the big 2-4. Okay, perhaps it’s not that big of a deal. However, the day before Thanksgiving, next week, I’ll be be twenty-four years old. I can’t believe it will only be one year until I celebrate a quarter of a century alive. Just yesterday I was throwing them back and falling asleep at the club.
Actually, that was three years ago at my 21st birthday extravaganza. Yesterday, I was enjoying steak and vegetables while catching up, with the…Continue

I have a blog on WordPress, but last night when I tried to post there it wasn't working for me, nor is it today. Not happy!
While I'm waiting for that to be operational for me again, I will share here.
Someone may have noticed .. but in case no one did .. Wednesday Nov. 16 was my birthday. I didn't have a party, but instead enjoyed a nice semi-quiet day. In the morning my sister took me shopping, then we got Dad and all three of us went out to dinner.
For my birthday I…Continue

How it's possible, I have no idea, but my sixtieth birthday is upon me in the next few days. In the ramp-up to this event, I've experienced a bizarrely wide range of events, from major travel (absolutely perfect, thrilling, soul-expanding), to a major medical situation with my Loved One (not so thrilling, but also soul-expanding in its way). Now I'm in the midst of re-organizing and re-decorating my office/writing…Continue
My previous post mentioned spending the weekend at a b’nai mitzvah for twins of my poker pal. The weekend festivities also included a Sunday brunch in honor of the 60th birthday of Paul, the father of the twins. I was reminded of a story I heard at his 50th birthday party. Paul and his sister have shared a single birthday card dating back to 1974. For almost 40 years the two have mailed this…Continue

Marginal Fail, Nul Point! and ringing in the changes
I might as well live in Antartica. Apart from the fact that it would probably be marginally warmer than London at the moment, it seems that - with a few notable exceptions - most of my social interactions this week have been…Continue

Today is my birthday. I have reached the ripe (but not spoiling) middle age of 47. I am proud to be 47 today. I am in a good place in my life. I have two wonderful, yet challenging children. I think the challenging aspects of parenthood keep me young. I have a husband that adores me, and the feeling is mutual. I have great friends and family…and I don’t look 47. I think that is the best part of all!
