When I wake up tomorrow I’ll be 50. It’s just an ordinary day really, but somehow it’s quite significant. I had plans for this day, like writing a middle-aged-and-wiser post and making a quilt while I still was in my 40ies as in “today I’m still in my forties”. Then I realized that I would rather celebrate being 50, you know embracing a new decade in my life, so I’ll make a celebratory quilt later instead.
By the time I figured out what I want for my birthday present, it was too late. I would love to go to a Coldplay concert, but they are sold out everywhere. Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, UK – all sold out. My other more humble wishes will come through though. I will have lots of my loved ones here, some of them flying in for the occasion, I will not have to cook – and I’ve got the two first copies of my brand new book right here. Not a bad start on my 50ies I’d say.
So, the next time you’ll hear from me I will be one day older and a decade wiser – or was it the other way around. Anyway, see you next week; I’ll have quite a few splashes of creative energy to share:)
