today is my birthday. looking back on the past year, it has been a gnarly rollercoaster. a big chunk was spent so full of joy, contentment and possibility, an even bigger chunk in profound sorrow, tumult, and loss, so much so that I start crying when I think of it. But embedded in my cynical self is a wide swath of optimism, which I wrap around myself like a blanket and hold onto tightly. Believing that the best is yet to come. Paying attention to the quiet sublime moments all around. Being thankful for my health, my family, my multitude of amazing friends, the wonderous life I’ve led up to now.
Today has been really nice, actually. I got a bunch of pictures back from the lab, ate a tasty tart at work, received many birthday wishes, and realized I’m coming up on 450 entries to this slog. Tonight promises even more fine entertainments.
