Today's prompt is OLDER.
Go.Older is a word that I have been thinking about all year. I have completed four decades of my life and am entering the fifth. Wow. That sounds old to me!
If by strenngth I would live until I am 80, then that makes me completely, perfectly middle-aged right now.
Funny, if you have already reached this halmark you understand exactly- that age is relative. When I was a teen and my parents were in their 40's I thought that was OLD. Today I see healthy people in their 60's living full, satisfying lives and I think "that's NOT so old!" Or vivacious seniors in their 70's that add new meaning to "elderly". I see mothers with toddlers and am surprised at how young they look themselves.
It has been a deep year for me in which I have been pondering about the things of life. What I have done and where do I want to go? What else would I like to do in this so very grand adventure?
It has been a turning of chapters for me. That is a good thing for I love to grab hold of a new book. But I have to admit sometimes it is hard to put that novel that so touched me back on the book shelf after eading the last page. Someties I want to take myself and just hang out and live in its world. I did though, put it on the bookshelf, knowing that I can always take a visit again.
I pick up the new book and see there are no words in it yet; I have to write them every day.
