October 12, 2010


It is almost the middle of October 2010: life is moving at an incredible speed. I have been married more than six years now, I have two children, and wrinkles are starting to show their crows feet around my eyes. A few months ago, my junior public school held its 50th year anniversary: I saw teachers I haven't seen in over 20 years, and recognized old faces and heard names that are etched in a distant memory.

I have come to realize that I am thirty-something. When I was a child, that TV show seemed foreign, impossibly far away. Time is precious. I have decided to spend a lot less time on the internet, and spend more time doing things that really make me happy: drawing, listening to great music, cooking, spending time with friends and family. I have a lot to explore, and at thirty-something, I can't let that time disappear anymore than it already has.

Things I want to do:
1) cook more
2) learn to sew
3) draw and paint more often
4) spend time turning our house into the dream
5) write again
6) exercise yoga

When I was eighteen, words came so easily. I was brave and emotional, and wanted to change the world. My words were efficient, sharp and full of an imagery I have buried under my jeans and button down shirts.

So it is decided. I will do this. :)

Any one of those things that you want to do more sound wonderful. With that said, there are just so many good things one can do out there, I think it's very easy to feel like your falling short and not reflecting/recognizing the great things you're already doing enough (when I walk into a bookstore, I always get down about how many books I'm not reading, which is silly but it happens). You clearly recognize the later though, which is likely a good sign that your a happy man.
