Fifty

50 years.

It was my birthday this week.

I guess I’m not a kid anymore.


If you missed me, here’s where I’ve been:

70s - Growing up in Bognor Regis, by the ocean on the south coast of England.

80s - School in West Sussex then college in Bath. Started to believe more firmly in God.

90s - IT work with Conoco, National Health Service, EDS. Moved to Bristol. Briefly played in a band.

00s - Bought a house, got married, owned a few nice cars. I always did like cars.

10s - Worked at Rolls-Royce then sold the cars, moved to Paris, wrote 2 books, started in photography, moved to New York area, had our first child.

20s - mostly stayed indoors.


Time flies, regardless of the fun levels.


I also worked with companies dealing with homelessness, cult membership, poverty and human trafficking. We’ve lived in 3 countries and visited another 35 or so.


Next? We’ll see, I’m working on a few plans.

;)


I loved this quote came across recently (in ‘Keep Going’ by Austin Kleon) :


“None of us know what will happen. Don’t spend time worrying about it. Make the most beautiful thing you can. Try to do that every day. That’s it.”

- Laurie Anderson



I’ll spare you the selfies. Here’s a (nearly fifty-year-old) Corvette that I came across last week.
