I’m 58. And I’m still here. And that’s a miracle.

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about my father. I seem to have forgiven him.

I’m 58 years old. I say that a lot. It’s such a weird number. It’s such a big number. And it’s so close to 59, which is so close to 60, which is really old. I can’t believe I got here. I say that a lot. It’s a miracle, really. I say that a lot, too.
