Does this picture resonate with you? Is this who you might like to be? Is this who you might like to have as a lover? If you're anything like me, the answer is yes. If forty, then fabulous. You may not want so much to look like the woman in the other picture below--consigned to the land of pregnancy kitsch and awkward family photos. What I've been thinking about for several days is what the result of fifty years of that looks like. It looks like the ridiculously precious and overpriced playground in which I'm having such a wonderful time. I'm wondering if having a family would curtail my desired lifestyle of frequent travel to Europe. And I'm wondering if that would be a dealbreaker. Which rather silly, as the most frequent onetime European traveler I know is--wait for it--my Dad.
