Thinking ahead to my next real blog post, I’m just now writing down the things I learned at the CA traffic class I took yesterday. One thing I was reminded of at the class that has nothing whatsoever to do with driving correctly is that whenever I see a person who’s about my age (51), I pretty much never think of myself as the same age as that person. Instead, I always automatically think the same thing about them that I would have thought about them when I was much younger, which is, “That person is so much older than I they can’t possibly relate to anything in my life.”

Then I remember I am the age of the person about whom I’m thinking that.

Apparently in some organic/instinctive/stupid sense, I’m always going to be, to me, twenty-two years old.

More and more I'm communicating with my readers through my free (and ad-free) email newsletter, which is just a simple, direct and personal email from me that I send out every three weeks or so. If you would like to receive this email in your inbox, subscribe to it on my website, or by using the subscription box about halfway down the column on the right. I wouldn't think of using your email address for anything but my e-newsletter (to which you can always unsubscribe with the click of a button). Thanks, and looking forward to communicating with you in this more intimate way.

    The Mrs. & I were in New York City visiting the Juilliard Bookstore when we had one of these moments. The student behind the cash register asked if we had a child that attended Juilliard. How dare he. We set him straight by informing him that the Mrs. was a graduate of the school. Later, as we were having lunch, I said to the Mrs. that we indeed were old enough to have a child at Juilliard. She responded with, "I know, I don't want to talk about it."
