38 Moon Walkers

There's something about being 38 that is standing out to me. Perhaps it is being just a few steps from 40 that I'm more alert to other people who are also 38 and wondering what they've accomplished in my same lifespan. That whole ReGenXers thang that I'm noodling.

Today's New York Times's article Film Takes Us Back 38 Years, to That First Walk caught my attention. Perhaps there is a subgroup of GenXers who are Moon Walkers - those of us born in the year of the first moon walk. Is Saturn now in retrograde for our us? What does that mean anyway?

Perhaps it is my birthday being on 3-8 this year when I'm 38 that is encouraging the extra contemplation.
