My birthday is looming-forty-six. Gosh! It seems only yesterday I was throwing up after my fourtieth. Now here I am, with the big 'five-oh' rolling it's eyes at me in the not-too-far distance. I must say, I feel better and more in tune with my big ol' self than ever...at 45. Age is a good thing..if I dont look too closely at my not extremely taut skin stuff...and I don't like people taking photo's of me-especially close up and in harsh light..(all light is harsh). Life is good. Anyhoo, for the 46th Birthday, I am going to run 46kilometers. Thank the gods I live in a metric age. Forty six miles is a totally different (blurk!) distance. So, May the 18th folks. Thats the big date. I am also teaching myself guitar and the plan is to be extremely good at it by the eye-rolling 50. Of course, I will continue running-because it keeps me feeling; well, pretty brilliant. So, there it goes, the birthday plan. Luck and plans.
