I've just started running again, and it's more than obvious that it's been awhile. Somehow, though, it's not as alarming a development as I'd expected. I will get up and move tomorrow, but I am not moved by any discernable ambition.
We visit friends, as we did this past weekend, and I enjoy listening to what they have going on, but I don't have much to add. I start to feel so lazy. A few days ago, we visited Judy and Richard, a couple of people we haven't seen since our weddings in 1989. They've been through a lot: lots of jobs, homes, circumstances, family events, and having children. It was really fascinating to listen to.
Ekim and I have lived such tranquil lives, compared to our friends, and not just because we didn't have children. Actually, The Stable Award goes to Ekim, who has had the same job since he graduated from college. He's the only person I know (approximately our age) who can say this. We've also lived in the same place for about 20 years. I've been through a few jobs, but the other things have stayed put.
Speaking of stable, there's no way to know if we're found the best kind of stable, but we've been very content. I suppose I could work on being more interesting, but I'd better be careful not to wish for exciting events. They could be scary...
