40: A Portrait

I am 40 today.

Cantina do Spade in Venice

Watching a small child grow keeps you anchored to the present rather than reflective about the past or contemplative about the future. This portrait, taken by Phin during our first family vacation in Venice, says just about everything I would want to say about my life in the present.

It says I am happy.

It says I have grown.

It says I like crazy pants.

It says I have purpose.

It says there is meaning.

It says I have joy.

It says I am loved.

It says I love.

I've heard that 40 is the place between experience and possibility, and I'm excited.
