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?
Many years from now
Will you still be sending me a Valentine
Birthday greetings bottle of wine.
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.
