Three years ago today it was a Friday. It was my last day of full-time work. Walking out that door was one of the most joyous experiences I had had to date. The whole world felt incredibly wide open. Today, May 5th 2009 I celebrate three years of life: life-full, life-lived, life-alive, life-as-gift-each-day, life-as-change, life-as-texture, color, sensation, making, traveling, breathing- life as just as wide open and full of potential as it suddenly became three years ago. I am grateful and humbled by this anniversary, by all that has happened in the space between. By the city and all the people that make it possible each day. And I will continue to be in awe each day longer that it lasts.
