July 15: And Make Believe.

I really do want to make a companion piece to reflect back on the goals I set for my 1,000 mile year. But let's face it, between my commitments to work, client photos, my relationship, my friends, aerial and running, I don't really have a lot of time to spend on conceptual photography.

 

So I'll skip all that, and make note: I turned 30 this week.

 

This is a big deal, because I always expected to meet some great, adventurous death, just days before hitting thirty.

 

I can say that my feels exactly as free and adventuresome as I expected when I was younger (minus the 40-hour work-week), but the difference between me now and me then is that thirty has stopped seeming like the day I become an adult....it's stopped being the line I am afraid to cross.

 

This last year, I did run 1,000 miles. In fact, I ran 1099.82 miles, according to my very-long spreadsheet.

 

And I learned to dance in mid-air.

 

.....Publish my book? Hmm. I need to put a little more time and focus into that process.

 

So the year has turned, and I'm on to the next. What's in store? Well? A marathon, for one thing. More aerial....and I'm hoping I might get to the level where I can perform. And that book. Seriously, kids. I want this.

 

But growing up?

 

Nah.

 

I can't even dress myself without looking like a toddler on speed.
