Taking stock

I don’t know what I was expecting, exactly. Certainly certain aspects of all this have been both more challenging and more gratifying than I could have anticipated. I have no complaints. But if when I was a younger person you had suggested to me that I would somehow reach my current advanced age without ever becoming a member of any fez-wearing fraternal organization I would have called you a danged fool but there you have it, for what is this life but a row of bright beads of missed opportunity strung together along a slender cord of humdrum quotidian routine?
