On My Birthday

I’m 39 years old today. And, probably for many reasons, Landslide is the song that has resonated the most with me in the past few months. There’s something about growing older, especially as my girls grow older, that makes me wistful for the past, but at the same time excited for the future. I read somewhere that Stevie Nicks wrote this in her late 20s; maybe I’m just behind, it’s not until I’m nearly 40 that I started feeling this way.

I don’t mind Stevie Nicks’ version of the song, but I do like the way the Dixie Chicks covered it better.

I’m happily hanging out in Seattle with bloggy friends at KidLitCon today, enjoying being with a lovely bunch of people. I can’t think of a better way to begin my last year in my 30s.

  1. I really connect with this song too, and enjoy both the Stevie Nick's version and the Smashing Pumpkins version. I haven't heard the Dixie Chicks one, but since I'm not a fan of the DCs anyway, I'll probably just stick to the ones I know. 😀

    Happy birthday!
