I turned 39 in September. It was my first birthday as a divorced man. And since separating days before my 37th, I've made a number of changes. The things and behaviors and interactions I value have changed. And the structures I once built around have become strictures limiting growth.
So my 40th birthday will not be spent in the same way any other (of mine) has been. It won't even be spent in the same hemisphere.
One way ticket. New priorities.
