On turning 40

Today I turn FORTY years old. That's right. It's the big one, Elizabeth! I've been doing a lot of reflecting on my life lately. I've been evaluating the details of different areas to see if I'm taking the right path that gets me to my goals.

Deep Thoughts by Beth Handy

Is there some kind of portal to a squirrelly 3rd dimension underneath my Yukon that the little rodents are diving into?
