Two weeks since my last entry eh? Well, that’s OK. I drifted away somewhat during the stay in Mexico.
And – well, today happens to be my birthday. It just made more sense to me to come back to the blog environment on a day of some sort of personal importance.
I’m not going to go into my exact age here, though it could easily be found in about 30 seconds online. It’s not that much of an issue to me, though I did wake up at 3:30 this morning with a head full of self-doubt about life issues related to my age. I’m sure the thoughts were feed by the old “what have you accomplished at your age and where are you really headed” ghost. I could actually feel its ethereal bony hand rudely shaking me from a deep slumber so as to more successfully whisper its words of self-doubt into my ear. The wide-eyed staring at the ceiling session seemed to last for about an hour before I managed to fall back to sleep. It was gone, almost completely, with the morning sun. Though, I can’t help but feel haunted by the thoughts somewhat throughout the day.
