smsed an old friend today to wish her happy birthday. she’s been having a rough time this past year, going thru a divorce and winding up her business. i asked her if she planned to do anything new after all this is over, her reply to me was “too old to do so by now”.
perhaps it’s just been too rough a patch for her, but it makes me thank the heavens that i met a bunch of people in 1999, 2001, 2002 and 2004, who, even though i was waaaayy over-aged, made me believe i could do it. and i did it last year, at the ripe old age of 35.
