The Year It Begins

Instead to finding yourself, begin with being yourself...

Then this moment is Coaches Corner...

Ten years ago, I was sitting at the Mortal Coil Martini Bar, as the designated driver of MJ & the P.  On the eve of my 25th birthday...

When the clock stroke 12 and my 25th year began, Mike turned to me and said:

"You know if the average life span is 75 years, that means that a third of your life is now over."

 "Wow! Thanks Mike!" was my reply. Anyhoo...  Back to the story...

"So the looking at your life as  hockey periods, you know what makes this moment?"

"What?"

"Coaches Corner."

And it could not have been more true.  There I sat as Mike and F bantered back and forth, but the topic was not hockey, it was girls...  :)  It was a sight to behold.  Mike was the Ron McLean of my life (the boys from Red Deer) and the P was (and always will be) my Don Cherry. 

Now as I am about to turn 35, I hope that evolution has made this moment the third of my life (especially with a dad that is 75...  :) )  One can live until 105 right?  :)

I am finding this step is bigger then it should be...  Maybe, it's the significance...  Maybe, it's the mid point of thirty...  Maybe, it's where I imagined I'd at this moment ten years ago...  Whatever it is...  Here we are...

Tomorrow, that mythical day to match the mythical year arrives...
