Welcome to 50!

Turning 50 is a monumental event. I always imagined that at half a century I would be a wise, strong, balanced, kind, confident and powerful woman who had it all figured out.

As it turns out - I'm the same person I've always been. Getting to 50 is the same as getting to any age of your life. Just trying to be the best person you can be.

Cheers! G

The Kite Runner

I picked up The Kite Runner in our building library, and finally read it this weekend. What a glorious read! It was one of those books that I'd heard mentioned a hundred times, but I didn't know anything about it - just opened and started to read.

I didn't stop until I was finished, and though it was rife with dramatic ups and downs, I felt good when I turned the last page. I have been avoiding books that I fear may be too depressing - I am too afraid that I can't handle the emotional weight - but maybe The Kite Runner has changed my mind.

A perfect rainy afternoon book - if you are a fiction lover, don't miss it.
