November 28, 2016, Prescott-Someone close to me says I am officially an old man. Well, yes and no. Consider today: I went to work, told no one it was my day (though it’s posted in the office kitchen, which none of my co-workers ever enter) and had a normal work day, which means I put forth an effort. I came home, took a 20-minute power nap. Then, it was time to mark the occasion, so I went by a Christmas display, at Prescott Resort Hotel, had dinner at Texas Roadhouse and went to see the film “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”, a Harry Potter prequel of sorts, with a fine ensemble cast and a great story line; definitely four-stars.
Age does not affect what I have ahead, over the next few months, either. December, though, is as far as I have planned, concretely, and then only in terms of those events that have to be planned well in advance. It’s more a matter of keeping the bulk of my focus on my work and on my Faith, than it is of slowing down.
I will have more to say about the weeks ahead, but now it’s time to keep my bedtime routine- 10:30 is late enough.
