Today's a milestone birthday. Forty! 

Another birthday doesn't really bother me. The passage of time is well-marked in smaller and more significant increments: with a quarterly magazine and a young son who is growing by leaps and bounds, I see how quickly time flies. My days are filled with work that I love doing. There is no time wasted, no regrets or unfulfilled wish lists...  there's a bookcase full of the results of my labour. I have no shortage of inspiration or projects that I look forward to exploring. I'm very lucky.

My amazing family is very supportive of everything that I do. A birthday like this is a good occasion to pause and say:

Thank you!
