blogger_idol-1.gif Week 5: Picture this!

When did this..............become this?!

The first photo is my senior picture, taken in 1978(!), which is 26 freakin' years ago! The second one was taken this past summer. How did this happen? How did time go past so quickly? It seems just yesterday that I was a fresh-faced, skinny, wet-behind-the-virginal-ears teenager, looking towards my 40's with a sort of incredulity. I think I really thought that I'd never live to be that old. Now, of course, 40 isn't that old, but something that happened 3 years ago. I don't really remember what I thought my life would be like at this age; I think there was some vague notion of being a famous fashion designer or something. That's not the case, of course--I'm still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. I'm just beginning to settle into being me, and figuring out who that is. I'm fairly comfortable with who I've become in most ways--I have wonderful friends, a fulfilling spiritual life, and the prospect of much discovery and learning still to come. I actually feel that this may be the year that another sort of "graduation" will take place--a graduation into contentment, and maybe a feeling of "commencement", so to speak. (It would be nice to have that 17 year-old body back, though! :^})
