Birthday candles

Apr 1, 2007

37 tomorrow. Feels like it will be a good age for me, although today I’m still dragging, low on energy and getting over a couple of days of grumpiness. I’m thinking these are lingering symptoms of the virus I fought last week.

Admittedly, I’ve been in a lull since the science blogging conference in January. My list of tasks and projects and activities is still as ambitious as ever, but none of these have sparked a fire yet. I’m not depressed. Just chilled.

I needed this time to slow down — I’m reading more, and spending more time with my daughters. Today I finished reading The Shark God, an excellent book about myth and magic in Melanesia. Tomorrow, I think I’ll dig into Michael Ruhlman’s The Soul of a Chef (and maybe that will light a fire under my butt to get the food blogging series planned).
