The Next Chapter of the Story

Birthdays are like new chapters. With 3.5 hours until the quarter century mark I started thinking about the next leap I will be making in the next 12 months ...

"You must know yourself that this story is full of big jumps. Leaps. When you first went to bed, Ithought to myself that I ought to wake up everyone in the house and throw a party for our marvelous jumping brother. What am I that I that I didnt wake everybody up? I wish I knew. A worrier at the very best. I worry about big jumps that I can measure off with my eyes. I think I dream of you daring to jump right out of my sight ... I think this new story is the one you've been waiting for ... Give me a story that just makes me unreasonably vigilant. Keep me up till five only because all your stars are out and for no other reason ..."

-J.D. Salinger

I'm off now to kick off the birthday celebrations. Hopefully all my stars are out.
