Quote of the day:
"I always find it more difficult to say the things I mean than the things I don't."
~ W. Somerset Maugham (1874 - 1965), British playwright, novelist and short story writer
Well I managed to survive my natal anniversary, and like the steelworker in the song, I feel “another day older and deeper in debt.” This was not a landmark birthday, or an age with any special significance, but this particular birthday did bother me and I honestly don’t know why. Is it the fact that I am still working? No one in my family was still employed at this age. Is it because I cannot retire? Is it the total political mire we seem to be sinking into? Could be? I think it is less that I mind being 69, and more that I’m not where I thought I would be at this point in time. After all, when I was a kid, I always said I would live to be 100, just to see what the world will be like…..
69 down, 31 to go.
