Ode to the 29’s of our lives

Good evening blogger,

Today I raise a glass to toast the start of the 29th book I will have read in the year 2016.

I can’t tell you why that number has any significance but what I can tell you is that I have never been more proud to be the person I am today than at any other time in my fleeting 22 years.

I have learned more about myself this year than I expected, I think partially this has to do with the constant changing state of Casey. Weeding out the good and bad of my life and learning what makes it all worth it.

Tomorrow I start a new job, I can tell you this is significant because I’ve worked at the same place for nearly four years and change isn’t something I take lightly or do often enough but the truth comes down to this:

it was time.

So, this is to the 29’s of your lives: the new jobs, the new families, the new pets, the new lunch spot, the new car, the new lover, the new record, the new life you are preparing for. I hope it finds you well, I always hope the 29’s find you well and you greet them eagerly.

“Give him another glass — then he’ll fetch up and get through it” -Thomas Hardy, Jude the Obscure

Thanks for reading,

-Lover of lit,
