Living My Life Like It's Golden

It's official: I'm a half century old.

How on earth did that happen?

The obvious answer is, of course, that I just kept living. But beyond the fact that I'm still here, I've tried to live my life as fully as possible (and I've got the stories to prove it). I guess that's why this song resonates with me so strongly. The way I see it, I only have two choices: I can let growing older bring me down or I can try to keep living a life that's full of good friends and good times. Sometimes the choices really are that simple.

In any case . . . HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

I have the distinct feeling that my fifties are going to be even more interesting than my forties . . .

The leap into the crowd was simply spectacular.
