I want nothing. At the same time, I want everything. Maybe a little bit of that which I cannot have.

In one week it will be my birthday. I will be turning 38 years old. First of all, just wow. I still remember being 8 years old, let alone 18 years old. Shoot, even 28 seems like yesterday.

Another year around the world. As is tradition, I, along with many others that celebrate their yearly birthing, I am often asked, “What do you want for your birthday?”
