A Retrospective

I am only a couple of entries away from 1000 posts on Living the Liminal. I thought it might be interesting to pull links together from the past in a kind of retrospective.

August 2005

Seven years seems so small when listed like that. Yet, the me I was in the August of 2005 seems like a lifetime ago in some ways. And, as I was writing this, I ust realized that I really am an entirely different person than I was back then, literally and on the cellular level:

Every one of us completely regenerates our own skin every 7 days. A cut heals itself and disappears in a week or two. Every single cell in our skeleton is replaced every 7 years. (Stanford)

And this isn’t just an arbitrary seven years as I have just recently passed the 42 mark of my life which is a multiple of seven, as was 35. Seems like we should develop some sort of ritual for our seven years “regeneration”.

On this day..
