I know that I will spend part of the day working and the rest of the evening returning to better times by watching Robotech at the Brattle Theater in Cambridge.
The usual maudlin thoughts that are usually reserved for this day were already spent while I was sick, so I don't have anything left for my birthday, which would actually be seen as a positive.
I don't feel older or wiser and I haven't since I was 13. The years rolled on and I just would get bigger and more liable for things like bills...
It's funny. I am grateful to be alive and I feel as if I should do something more to mark the occasion but anything else would be hypocrisy or plain weird.
I am bummed that the 65 degree weather of last year will not be this year. One seeming constant is that I delay any real celebration of anything until warmer weather. Details about that to come...
I did come up with a motto for this year: Know where you want to go and plan how to get there.
Last year's was probably: "You gotta be kiddin' me!!!"
2004 was: "I need a spear and magic helmet-STAT!"
Well, here's to another year full of possibilities and bumps and aches and possible growth.
And better blog entries...
