October 12th was my 48th birthday. I took this photo in the late afternoon yesterday overlooking Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains of New York State. I was so struck by this image when I downloaded it from my camera. It simply reflected the way I feel at this stage of my life—flawed, unique, resilient, independent and surrounded by wonder and beauty.
And smarter than you have ever been! Which is always a special understanding.B
