Thirty-eight is the atomic number of strontium, a metal. It is the number of slots on American Roulette wheels. It is an even number, divisible by 1, 2, 19, and 38. Otherwise, it's not the most remarkable number out there...but it's my age as of today, August 12.

I suppose it means I'm really pushing 40, but I prefer to live my life one age at a time, so I won't dwell on that. At 38, I am a full-time music teacher, a homeowner, a three-time half marathon finisher, and still the same duck-toting, London-loving, loud-singing Meg I've always been. This year in my life starts off with ever-present possibility for adventure and joy.

May it be so.
