Another Birthday, Another Decade
When I was young, learning how to encounter the wider world, Plato's quote "The unexamined life is not worth living." helped me. Now as I walk in this wider world, I return to it. I can't help but wonder if I abandoned this idea for a time and that's why I feel strange to turn 30--I haven't looked inside to see who I am at this age, at this turn of the decade. I've been going through the motions, taking for granted the examining I did in my early twenties.
So here I am, 30, facing the future and turning inward for a bit, and it's very good.
