Well that was my thirties. Beautiful, fun, life-changing, hideous, painful, purposeful and completely unexpected in almost every way imaginable. I document things so that I don’t forget, so that my son might understand things for himself one day, and perhaps because I regret not preserving more of what we had together when we started our life out as a little family. So here’s a brief summary of my last decade in words and pictures, probably for myself as much as anyone else.
31 Unconditional love
33 Pleasure, progress and then unimaginable pain
34 Achievement through adversity
35 Withdrawal and emptiness
Today I feel like the lucky one for having got this far. Now let’s hope the next ten years prove as interesting if just a touch less testing.
