    Arrival At The "Older" Station

    I have not come to this place easily. I have not aged gracefully.  I have hated getting older.  My body betrays me, my brain betrays me, losses pile upon losses.  Things around me change without my permission.  I am not as in-control of my environment as I once was and I can...

    Getting Older

    Each Day

    Soon I'll be 37! Where did it go? Why do we have to age? Inside I'm still me but outside my body has changed as the years add their scars. I miss those days and feel like they escaped me. I would love to go back but until then I have my memories and dreams to keep me going.

    50

    I will be 50 in 3 weeks and it actually doesn't bother me at all, I think turning 40 was a bigger deal in my mind than 50 is. I guess there is nothing you can do but accept it and move on with  grace.

    And Than It Hit Me

    So I was watching **** this fine morning when I had an epiphany. You know you’re getting old when you begin to admire the bed the actors are screwing on. All I could think of was, “that bed looks comfortable, where do I get one?”

    Hi. The no. 30 comes frequently in women experiences, as if a milestone, which reminds me of  the first time I encountered the no. 30 in this context . I was eighteen, on my first days at a British university, feeling lost, in such a large institution, as a stranger...
