I'm at the beginning of what I expect will be a very fun weekend, and an opportunity to reconnect with where I was last year and marvel at the difference between last year and this year. I've written before about the physical differences (ie, I can start a fire now and I couldn't do that last year. My house is around 70 degrees this year and it was at 58 last year). What I haven't written about, because I didn't know, is how my thought patterns have evolved in the last year. I'm repeating a weekend thing that I did last year - and the differences between me now and me last year are really striking to me. I need to absorb it and think about it a bit before I write about that more. I'm also catching up with a friend this weekend, who knows a lot more than me about animals. Even the questions I'm asking her are different than last year. Striking.
