Tomorrow...Part I

I've noted in passing,that if you live long enough,you can pick any day on the calendar and attach some kind of personal significance to it.
This is the gift that only comes with age.
That's right!..
You have to walk up and down upon the Earth,and travel to and fro in it before you can really kick back in the air conditioned comfort of,..well,..having lived.
..Not that I'm all that ancient,(reflects on image in the mirror,..oh yeah,..still got it),but I have been 'round the block a time or two,and around the sun nearly 54 times(Christ!..No wonder I'm dizzy!)...
Anybesides,..This is the time of year,when I think very many of us tend to examine our lives,and take stock of the wealth we have accumulated,squirreled away,and patiently tended in an effort to leave something of ourselves for future reference.

***NOTE***
If you think I'm talkin' about material stuff,..click "Next Blog" now..
..I knew you wouldn't. ;)

...to be continued..Tomorrow.

I confess, as I age I do tend to try and take a little psychic inventory as each year winds it's way down. Take a little look at the big picture, see if I managed to actually accomplish something. Unlike you, I avoid the mirror however.

**And if you think I meant material matters, wrong commenter, next person**

And that song always choked me up a little, even as a kid :)

doralong- "Psychic Inventory"..I like that!
..and I tend to only look in the mirror while not wearing my glasses..easier on the ego that way.
I'm off to work here in a few,but I expect to become richer still by this afternoon. :)

You don't look a day over 40 trips around the sun.

Oops. I got distracted by toast with avocado honey and forgot I left this open. I'm glad it didn't burst into flame or anything.

Hey! I especially love that about age! How we discover that life is definitely its own reward.

I can't wait for part 2!

I have lived long enough to know one thing. The older I get.....
the older I get....

In order to do that you also have to have a good memory of things worth attaching to days, alas I do not.

I measure life's meaning in terms of new clothes, and lattes.

I'll leave philosophy to those I swindle and cheat, in order to buy material things that make me feel better about myself. I had really low self esteem until I got that 24 cylinder SUV. It runs on baby seal oil and pure ozone.

Mwahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Love,

"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, pie in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming ~ WOO HOO what a ride!"

Love,
Julie

Do you suppose Rudolph tipples a tad?
