Waking Up to the Not-Death

After a full year of not blogging, I return with a full blown midlife crisis on Medium!

I’m not actually sure this is a midlife crisis, but since the average life expectancy in the United States is 78.79 years and I’m 40, it probably is.

There are three little watercolors in the article. Here’s the one I painted just for this.

mostly purple watercolor painting that says "I'm alive"

It’s tiny, painted with a border on a 3″ x 4″ piece of Fabriano hot press watercolor paper. The watercolors are the cheap “basics” ones from Michaels that come in a pallet with a bunch of colors for $5.99. The pen is a 005 Micron.

The art isn’t really the point of the essay.

Unless it is.
