Blogging is like journaling is like talking to yourself. It's a release with the possibility that it will be read by someone else. That possibility in itself feels like a connection to the world.

Lawn mower

My lawnmower gave up the ghost this weekend. I've had it for almost 20 years ans it was given to me used. It might seem odd to write about this but it has been with me for a long time. A reminder of how I mostly avoid making practical purchases like this as much as humanly possible. The mower was electric, by the way. I contemplate wanting to stay with an electric and what will cost. Thankfully it is a purchase I can make.

Post Birthday Thoughts

I turned 55 yesterday. Both of my parents were deceased by the age of 53. Writing the words cannot convey the experience of this reality I live. I am so thankful to still be alive.
Yesterday score upon score of friends contacted me mainly through the internet to wish me a happy birthday. I remain humbled by the love I feel from everyone.
