Symbols and Seasons
October is my birth month. It's right around the corner. I'm attending my 25th High school reunion. Haven't seen some of these girls in 25 years. We had a small graduating class..48 in all. I usually would avoid Pasadena, and reminiscing..but I decided, if not now, When?
I will also meet a friend, I've never met. That should be very interesting.
In the middle of the month, right after my 43rd birthday, I will take Rachel and her close friend on College Tour: The Northern CA Edition. We will tour Stanford, Berkeley, St. Mary's and Santa Clara.
I will have lunch with a boy. With whom I lost my virginity.
It's going to be a full month.
The first snow will come. The sweaters will move from back to front. I will move inside, in my thoughts, in my mood and in my riding. Better gallop now, while I can. Months of indoor arenas are ahead.
As if to signal this change, I wanted to do something different. Something that would remind me that it is all just part of this wonderful life. The wonderful endless dying and birthing, changing and remaining...life.
I think I'm smack in the middle now...so I wanted find something represent that. Physically.
And this is what I came up with....
I am now a tattooed lady. It makes me giggle.
