Fresh eyes see things differently. And they see the difference without even trying.
Because to them, it’s obvious.
Last night near bedtime, the 14 year old was getting a rare look at these blog posts. Right away he asked why the photo captions weren’t in the photos like they used to be.
He also said, “They look ugly the way you are doing it.”

There is only one, resounding answer to this question.
And maybe by tomorrow I’ll have my movie soundtrack song(s) to share with the world. This was a fun, and frustrating, exercise.
And anything but simple.
Should have seen it coming.
Mid Life Crisis? Mid Life Celebration?
Two choices. Maybe there are more, but it only seems like two that are obvious.

“It’s the hardest thing in the world to accept a little success and leave it that way”. — Marlon Brando
More is better, right?
I’m pretty much an over-achiever. Hard to have a 25-year career within a Fortune 100 company and not have excellence rub off on you.

Midlife provides a second look at common sense. Midlife does not provide an easy choice. But it does provide one.
