I'm 41 today. I woke up thanking God for letting me make it this far, and wondering what the next 41 years will bring. Eve Tushnet had something a neat self-study posted last week. I thought it was a cool reflection, because I believe that the passions of our heart determine our choices - which then define us. Here are some of mine...
