I look forward to this every year. I get away for a few days by myself on my birthday. I'm headed out this afternoon and won't be back till Wednesday.
I turn 50 on Monday.
So far I'm doing things a little extra this year. Usually I go lock myself in a cabin on a ranch in AR but tonight I'm going to a pro-rodeo at our state fair grounds (I miss my days of barrel racing), staying in a historic hotel tonight then off to a cabin for a few days. I'll soak in a big claw-foot tub, have several meditations to read and experience, and a lot of lists to make, and do some hiking in the woods. I'm looking forward to recharging.
