1 year away from 49 and ten years away from 59 which is the age my father passed away at.

Our lives have taken divergent paths and there’s an argument to be made that my direction was taken to avoid following in his footsteps.

Hopefully, I’ll influence my son’s life in a different manner.

50 is the new 40, amiright?
