Thank you for this very thoughtful response. I am honored!
I intentionally titled the piece “Getting Older…” rather than “Getting Old…” because I actually do not feel that I am, at 57, an old person. What’s old?! But the idea of growing older applies to everyone. So I fully accept the point about 57 not being old and hope that others will realize, too, that I am talking about the march of time. That might be from 28 to 29 for some people or 56 to 57 for me or 85 to 86 for someone else. In each and every case, there is the inevitable progression of days :)
I so hope you do a list! I’d love to see people doing this and sharing with a community of like-minded souls. Even old souls…:)
