I don't wallow in nostalgia all the time, honest - but a thirty year anniversary is a good excuse, I think. But now it's the 4th of October; enough of the ifs, buts and maybes. It's time to stop living my life in the past or in an imagined future. There is no parallel universe in which my life took a different turn thirty years ago. I need to get on with living my life the way it is. I like it, and you seem to. It's turned out nice, you know.
