I'm preoccupied with age at the moment. Doing the mental countdown to the big 3-0. And being amazed at how I still feel much as I did at 23 or thereabouts. Though if I'm honest, I realize that I'm doing a lot better than I was then. Still: I'm a kid.
But there are good things about being a grown up, I sometimes forget the freedoms I have, if that makes sense. My friend Martin played this song at a party I was at this past weekend, which sums it up nicely. The song is by Lou & Peter Berryman, who are funny enough that I've heard lots of people cover all sorts of their songs over the years.
Turning 30 is a big shock to the system. it's when most people realize that while they may still feel like a kid, they're an adult now. I don't expect to have a similiar b-day shock until 50. That will scare me.

It has been said that your 30's are the best years of your life. :o) I can't wait!
