Age is only a number, right??


Today is my birthday. I am so happy that I was born, but feeling a little sad that I am getting older. I look at my kids and they are adults now. Wow.
I have a several friends running in 100 mile races today. My thoughts are on them as they push through this evening and into the night. Running a race can make you feel so young despite the pain and fatigue you may encounter.
Started my day off with a swim and the weather is beautiful. What more can I ask for?

Taking it all in.
...we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens once a certain number of times, and a very small number, really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that's so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more. Perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems so limitless. Paul Bowles
