My BFF is the same age I am. Actually she’s older……by a month. We have known each other since we were five. We deliberately don’t dwell on our number. Why would we? What we do is relish the energy and venues of NYC. But, every now and then we talk about “it”……….and then quickly change the subject.
In golf terms, “we’re on the back nine.” A lot can happen finishing up a round of golf. You can win on the 18th.
There are quotes that hit the emotional mark about age. “A woman who tells her age will tell anything.” Oscar Wilde. I BTW tell my age..
Rosemary Harris when asked if she was really 90 by Glenn Close said, “I’m 91. My last decade–it’s almost frightening because you push it away. But it’s there hovering, all the time.” At the moment she’s on Broadway performing in My Fair Lady, so obviously she’s pushing.
I hope physically and emotionally to keep pushing.

It’s the “number” that carries all the power. Why not lighten the load by subtracting 10. We would have the same good health, vitality, aliveness and interests. Just minus the prejudice ascribed to “the” number. The stigma is lessened.
Happy holidays, my dear. I’m a little over the half century mark and still looking up. Blessings to you always 😊
I love the quote Pres Bush #43 said of his father yesterday during the funeral. Pres Bush #41 apparently said, ‘The idea is to die young as late as possible.’ a quote by Ashley Montagu– Love this! The funeral was powerful and special and I am so glad I watched it yesterday and today. You are only as old as you feel… but some days I feel like I am 25 and others 80. I think it depends on the amount of rest I have had. Happy Holidays my friend! ❤
