What a year it’s been. It’s tough to know where to start so it seems only appropriate to start at the end. This year, more than any other, I find myself looking back far beyond the last 12 months. I catch glimpses of laughter and loitering, lingering long past the end of parties, and pondering this and that. Many faces flash past and I find myself zooming to hear and now. So much of has changed. So much has stayed the same. And I catch my breath long enough to laugh again. I have so many wonderful people in my life, seen so many amazing things… and I feel like I’m just getting started.

It’s probably normal to intro/spect far beyond normal in the years that large milestones are reached. 40. Crazy. I’m an old man and I love it.
