A milestone birthday is fast approaching for me. It seems as though when we are faced with these markers in time, we tend to react in one of a few extreme ways. Some of us panic, trying desperately to turn back the hands of time to recapture an imagined glorious youth. Others freeze time, refusing to admit to aging past their chosen year. Still others buy sports cars or have hot, steamy affairs to try to fill a hole in their psyches. None of those options suit me, so I decided to embrace a new challenge.
This is not a lackadaisical impulse but is instead the culmination of one chapter of my life and the embarkation of another. I invite you to come along for the journey as I throw my hat into the writing ring.
My goal is one 500 word article per week, subject to increase in the future.
I am open to topic suggestions.
Thank you and happy writing.
