A milestone, of sorts

I turned 50 today. And all in all, it was pretty good.

My health's excellent. I've been working out every day for the past week; it's just a start, but it's a good start. I haven't been able to maintain a streak like this in a long time. The secret, if I have one, is that I'm now thinking of exercise as a prescription from my doctor - which it is - rather than as something "good" that I "should" be doing.

Sebastian and I went together to the YMCA the last two nights to work out. This should help him too, and he'll help me to keep it up.

As I was barbecuing in our snow-covered back yard tonight - it was a warm day, the first springlike day so far this year, and I was in my workout clothes including a t-shirt - I looked up and saw the moon, and the Big Dipper, and the North Star above our house. Other stars, too.

Fifty years isn't long enough. I'm looking forward to more.
