State of the Tavern Keeper - July 29th, 2018 - You Say it My Birthday, But Not for Another Few Hours...
Tomorrow, in a few short hours, I turn 51. For some reason, turning 51 has more meaning to me than turning 50.
As I turn 51, its the first birthday that I am truly a member of Team Frog God.
As I turn 51, I have added a moderately successful daily podcast to the mix.
As I turn 51, I no longer see myself primarily as a cop, or retired cop, but an active and contributing member of the OSR. I am forever grateful and humbled by the community that has formed around The Tavern.
As I turn 51, I suddenly have an understanding of my own mortality. Being a cop, at least a successful one usually means believing in your own immortality. I no longer have that illusion clouding my vision, and each day is more precious with my new clarity.
I started blogging at the age of 42, a few months short of my 43rd birthday. For the handful that have been around all that time, I am in your debt. For those that have joined the ride along the way, know that I plan on continuing doing what I've been doing over the past few years, just more so.
