38

I started taking a picture of myself on my birthday, a quick snapshot to commemorate the day on my blog.

To mark my place.

These 38 years have been good to me. I hope to spend the next 38, spreading all that good around.

I tend to favor calculated risks. Maybe they are sure things, masquerading as challenges; I don't know. But I plan to shake things up a bit this year.

I'm ready for a little heat.

And happy, happy birthday to my sweet 6 year old nephew, Austin. I hope you get lots of birthday snow tonight. You rock, dude!
