Birthdays are one of those deep introspection opportunities for me, and since mine is tomorrow, I guess it's that time again.
A lot has happened during the past year. Most of it in the last six months. Clarion West ended a week ago, which was an amazing exhausting overwhelming encouraging experience. I am moving into a new place. I am making plans to return to the workforce. I started narrating audiobooks. And I sent in my resignation as the Every Day Fiction Podcast Manager--that was a hard decision and I will always be grateful for the experience, but at the end of the day it was a resource issue and something had to give.
Not to get too much more personal, but life is good and bad and in between. Change is change is change. I am just plain grateful to so many people for being a part of my life, and I am grateful to Jeremy for more than I can say here.
So, happy birthday, me. I look forward to seeing where I/me/we end up on the other side of all this crazy.
Now I think I'll go get drunk.
