On December 2, 2013 I will be 40. I am planning some events around that day which will comprise a birthday week, more-or-less. These include the Emjay concert at Steel City Coffeehouse, a trip with my wife to NYC, and a gentleman’s gathering in my basement for billiards and brandy (probably beer instead, though). I have a couple surprises I’m planning for people too.
I want to reflect on the last 40 years and imagine the 40 years to come. My dad died when he was 40. My wife’s grandparents are in their 80’s and still deeply in love. How will my story go? I need a community of people in my life to tell this tale. I invite you to join me over the next couple of weeks to see how the events unfold. I do know how I want the story to end, though…
