When I’m 64….Oh Wait!

Jeez. I heard that Beatles song tonight while we were eating tacos with “Alexa” who had joined us for dinner. All of a sudden, I was transported back to when I was 12 years old, when this song came out. I started singing along, then I listened to the lyrics and felt so old.

I realized that I am 64 years

How the hell did that happen? What happened to those 52 years that just went slip sliding away?

“When I get older losing my hair
Many years from now
Will you still be sending me a Valentine
Birthday greetings bottle of wine.
If I’d been out till quarter to three
Would you lock the door
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I’m sixty-four.”

So now I am 64. I am older. But I am stronger. I am smarter. I am more confident. I am in control. I am sexier. I have lost but I have won.

I do not regret one moment of the past 50+ years….the joys and sorrows, the victories and tears. And I can’t wait to see what happens next.

There is no map. Let’s just go.
