Yes, I turn 39 tomorrow. And what movie did we rent and watch tonight? Tuck Everlasting. Essentially a poetic fairy-tale that, at least in some senses, lauds growing old and reflects on how the knowledge that we'll one day die helps us value and live each moment fully. Hmmm! Interesting movie choice!
I was realizing tonight that we've lived in our little "post-industrial town that time forgot" for almost a decade now. The first birthday I ever celebrated here was my 30th. Feels like a very long time ago!
