Sobriety creates space where there was once overcrowding, time where there was a rush, energy for healing where there was so much pain. Hospitalization and bedrest halted my fitness fanaticism, allowing new workouts to emerge. The gift mom always said I came to share has cracked through.

The Sum Of All Years is Bonnie Gillespie’s autobiography in which the word count for each post is limited to the corresponding age for that entry. See them all, here.

    Of course today I stumbled onto Sum Of All Years: 9 while doing Get In Gear work. Spent the last twenty minutes reading all of your Sums. Thank you for sharing, as always.

    Happy birthday. Happy you were born, happy you are alive. Excited to see what this year has in store for you!
