(updated January 2011)
I’m sitting in my comfy chair, looking out the window at our frozen neighborhood & wondering when my furnace will be able to stop working so hard.
As I write this, it’s the last day of 2010.
Writing an About Page is a tricky thing. Theoretically it’s the place people come to find out who I am – the blogging equivalent of a dating profile, I suppose. So I should probably just come out and say it: this year’s About Page will be boring compared to years past. Gloriously boring. A life without angst and drama suits me, so I embrace it willingly.
Feel free to read my 2005 & 2006 archives if you want something more dark and twisty.
I did not revise my About Page last year – there was no time. Or perhaps no need. I’m sure I could’ve written something if I really wanted to, but maybe that’s what 2010 was all about: stamping out the shoulds.
There is a considerable chance I’ll be writing my about page from a new home next year. I don’t know exactly where that will be or how it will happen, but we are determined to downsize and move back into Seattle. So if you know of a 1,000 square foot 2-bedroom apartment or condo for rent in Belltown or Capitol Hill, hook me up.
I turn 40 this year.
This feels like my destiny, the climax of my life, the time and place I was created for. I’ve been looking for a place like 40 most of my life – a respite from the angst of my 20’s and the growing pains of my 30’s. I imagine heaven will be a fabulous place, but until I get there 40 will do just fine.
And there’s me in a nutshell as I head into a new decade. I may blog, or I may not. I might write a book, but probably not. Perhaps we’re moving, but I’m not really sure.
We still live life in the uncertain, undone middle, but that’s precisely what makes it so interesting.
Happy New Year.
