The ramblings, meanderings and stream of consciousness of a middleaged, short guy.

Friday, January 30, 2004

Well, it's been a long time since I've been here. It's funny how quickly life goes by. It seems like only a couple of weeks. Truth be told it hasn't even been a couple of months. It was August when last I wrote anything. August!

Can you believe it?

I was telling a friend the other day: "I went to bed 17 and woke up 39. How the hell did that happen?"

Life moves. Time marches.

I guess you get to the place where you realize that the clock is either your friend or your enemy. It is one of the few things that you can't be neutral about. Oh, don't get me wrong, you can ignore it, for awhile, but sooner or later you will determine that you hate the clock or you love it.

Me? I haven't decided yet.

I turn 40 this year. Some say that is middle-aged. Me? I say middle-aged was about 4 - 6 years ago. I have no delusions of living to be 80, but I can assure you of this . . I intend to live. I want to know what it is like to be wide awake, to not be beset by mediocrity, to not go with the flow, or roll with the punches.

As I discover how to live wide awake, I promise to let you know.

Be good.

Be awake.
