It's my BIRTHDAY!

I'm not usually one to get excited about birthdays but this year I think I'm making an exception. It has been an interesting year. I'm slowly but surely gaining more knowledge, becoming more aware of the world, and less surprised when things happen.

My mother said to me a few weeks ago (ruminating on her own 55th birthday) that you keep waiting to feel like a grown up but it never quite happens. Life is just a series of stages. Transitions. With age comes experience so life doesn't surprise you as often. You recognize a change in the wind as a change, not the end of the world. Most of the time. But I think by and large adulthood is a myth. And I think I'm okay with that. Most of the time.

Today I am spending the day doing things I wanna do with whoever will join me. Going to a nude beach, going to a bar (something I so very rarely do), going to see the new Batman movie, and tomorrow I'm getting together with two of my favorite nerd fellows to watch some old school Doctor Who. I anticipate much awesomeness.

My imagination is good enough. No photos needed. Btw, you need to rub in the sunscreen a little more on your elbow.

SOunds like a wise mama and wise daughter, too. Don't grow up - I don't think it sounds like fun at all. ;)

Happy birthday, love. I hope this one is fantastic and the year that follows makes you laugh with joy. *hugs*
