I am now 42.

Wow. Man, a lot has happened between now and 41. Feels longer than a year. Heck, I think i even grew up to be *gulp* - an adult.


Now I regard most thirty-somethings as clueless babies. *cackle*

Feels good actually. My health is better, my stress level is down and Im bursting to go do things. And i dont even mind the gray in my hair anymore.

I like where Im at.

Right on.

For the record, I feel 32. Just not as confused as I was then.

Ok, not just a little bit.

There will be two quite distinct themes at work in your life over the coming 12 months. On the one hand travel and social activities will bring a great deal of joy. On the other hand you will have to deal with a long-running saga of ambition and jealousy. You'll do okay if you don't take anything too seriously.
