How odd to think that as of today I've taken the first step into the seventh decade of my life!
Really? How in the world did that happen?
Yup. Today I turned 60.
Gosh, I remember a time not so long ago when I thought that was OLD. How funny how quickly our perspective changes.
But I resolve to make this seventh decade the best one yet. I feel fortunate to have my health -- without that the years are burdens rather than celebrations.
There are wonderful plans underway for making this first year of the seventh decade one of the best. I've already tackled a major studio project and have work underway for a spring show with a colleague, I'm wearing a new (and smaller) size pair of jeans today, am studying for a graduate class I'm taking at the university, have started to count down the days until I leave for China in June, and began my birthday today with an invigorating workout, followed by breakfast with dear friends, lunch with husband, and festivities planned with three of my favorite couples...and I hear there might be dancing to cap off the night.
Seventh decade is off to a sweet start!
