I turned 50 today

Some reflections on the first third of my life.

I’ve been blessed with people in all stages of my life who supported me, and even when situations didn’t warrant it, they kept believing. My parents are alive and healthy, three terrific kids, two grand kids, a most excellent and accomplished son-in-law (and another in the wings).

Professionally I’m on plane, and keep finding new things to be curious about, and sometimes fix, the lifelong learning continues.

My wife deserves the majority of the credit for survival to this point. She kept me from dying of malnutrition in med school, and refrained from killing me when I gave her the opportunity, and she’s The Best.

So, here’s to more 50 year BDay celebrations!

    Congrats, what is crazy is how you will notice in the coming years things just fall into place and those issues that were so important just a short time ago are simply small bumps in the road.

    Enjoy the next decade, it really is the greatest time of your life. Old enough to know better, young enough to still do.
