Life has become very busy. This space is for me to share my experiences, ramblings and quirkiness with anyone who cares to read them. I'd love to hear your thoughts, especially if you're someone I used to talk to a lot but have lost touch with. Enjoy!

There is an uncanny number of birthdays listed on my October least 10. Apparently January is the month to get busy.

On a completely unrelated note (unrelated only to mitigate the gross-out value of the connection between this and the previous statement), my dad celebrated his 60th birthday yesterday. It was the first time I can say I genuinely celebrated his, or anyone else's, birth - or rather, his being alive. This year has been so tumultuous for him - all of us - that there were actual moments of doubt. And I'm realizing more and more that I probably won't need more than two hands to count the number of birthdays he has I actually value his birthday. It's interesting, because despite all the birthday wishes I send people and birthday partying I do, it's rare to feel an emotional connection to the celebration. That is, beyond an immediate feeling of happiness for being in a particular place at a particular time, and seeing the birthday-person happy. Kudos to my dad for turning 60!
