My birthday month has gotten off to a great start, yesterday Joe and I went to the High Museum to see the Terracotta Warriors exhibit. It was wonderful. I have never been that great of a fan of ancient Chinese art, but it was fantastic. It is hard to believe the detail that was put into the creation of all of those terracotta pieces. And to think that it was created for the tomb of one ruler is unbelievable. They were magnificent as they were, but to have seen them when they were first made and painted would have been awesome. After the exhibit, of course we had to watch the Super Bowl. We are both big football fans. I was hoping that Arizona would win but it was a great game. The halftime show was one of the best. I can't believe that Bruce Springsteen is 59 years old. He definitely doesn't look it. I am celebrating number 49 in a few days and many days, especially recently, I feel every bit of it. Although most days I don't think about age, I think you are as old as you feel and most days I feel about 10. I guess that is why I work in an elementary school. I am starting to think about how I can celebrate Ithe big one next year. I want to do something different. Any suggestions?
