Tomorrow, 30 years.
The fourth decade is supposedly the start of a new "adult" phase in life. But with all the adults who want to be children, and the children who are forced to be adults (ideas courtesy of this month's Utne Reader and Robert Bly), I'm not sure that I, beginning my early 30's, am being addressed.
I'd prefer to achieve both pursposeful adulthood and insightful childhood from here on out....
