RE: Birthdays to therapy to Valentines Day plants...and a question....

I had trouble with 40 myself, Jim.  30 was no problem at all, but 40?  I
wasn't where I wanted to be with my career at all.  It was a bit of a let
down.  It was my wonderful family that made me realize that I was not my
job.   (I was going to school and working full time with teens in the house
and in-laws staying with us for an extended period.)  Looking back, I don't
know how I managed it all.  I don't worry about birthdays at all any more.
They come and they go.  I don't feel much different from year to year now.
The vanity is gone. And who needs mirrors?  I use them less and less.

I just need more time to plant and let the earth absorb my worries and my
tensions with every weed I yank.  

BTW, DH got me a beautiful red Anthurium 'Gemini' for Valentines Day!  Does
anyone have experience with this plant?  Will I be better to leave it
indoors all year round, or set it outside in summer in a mostly shade sight?

Interesting. Turning 30 was a watershed event for me, too. I've heard,  
however, that 40 is how you will think of yourself for the rest of your  
life. And I guess I believe that--it's always disconcerting to see  
myself in the mirror these days. Takes a moment before I realize it's
