New Beginnings

Yesterday was the 15th anniversary of my father’s death. You may recall that
I wrote about it last year. Thanks to those who did, and sent warm messages
of support.

I also completed a 5K yesterday. The picture above is from the starting line. As
you can see, it’s no where close to zero. We started after the half marathon
participants began.

Just like the race, life doesn’t always begin when you think it will. I
didn’t know I’d be 41 before I’d  feel fully alive. I didn’t know I’d leave
behind friends and a community I built in order to feel deeply connected.
And I definitely didn’t know is have to lose my dad in order to get a deep
sense that he would be really proud of me.

Here’s to new beginnings, whenever they occur…
