I love this sign at the Keflavik Airport in Iceland. Even though I’ve passed 40 long enough ago to disbelieve it. Climb a glacier? Hell no, I can’t even manage a proper crow pose in yoga class. But I also love this picture of my friend on her 40th birthday. She celebrated her birthday by traveling alone to a new country for a writing retreat, and while there took in her first heavy metal concert. Here she is posing with the lead singer of one of the bands.
Maybe a 40 year old can’t do anything, but being 40 – or any number – is no reason not to try something new.
