Marking time

It’s my birthday today.

It’s also my wife’s 50th birthday.

We are unique like that sharing the same birthday.

We’ve known each other for 28 years.

She is a terrific artist. Self taught. Our house is her gallery. Her fame needs to keep up with her talent.

She is also a wonderful mother to our two daughters.

Borrowing an idea from a college friend, I suggested to her to do 50 things this year.

She came back with 50 hikes in 365 days. She has roped me in as well. She has cautioned that she will paint on location. I have to figure something meaningful to do while I wait.

That’s a pace of one hike a week. It can be done.

What that will teach us, it’s hard to predict. But being in Nature is essential for our existence so no learnings may be needed.

Look out, it’s Friday the 13th.
