I love magazines -- always have. In fact, I remember getting Highlights as a child and saving every issue.
At one point during my 30's, I was getting a ridiculous number of subscriptions, and over the past several years I have cut way back. I still like to indulge in a magazine binge every once in a while though and today was a good day for such things.
It's the 12th anniversary of my dad's death -- he died suddenly when he was only 49. I'm in my 40's now and it all freaks me out a bit. Then there is the annual charity event we hold in his name -- which is today. Sometimes I feel like it is just too much of a reminder that he is gone -- a constant reminder year after year.
Since I haven't really slept for the past two nights and I needed a little comfort, it was time for a magazine binge. I'm looking forward to tomorrow when I can hunker down, have a good look at them and get back to thinking a little more about life and a little less about loss.
