I read somewhere that a person's perceived life time is half over at age 21 and I think that there is something to that.
They lived the wrong life. It seems apparent to me that over 2/3 of my life has been spent over the age of 21, and I'm only 45. 21 was so long ago I filed it away in the history cabinet with things like the Reformation and the Civil War.
Actually this is a good age to be except that time is just rocketing by. We had mandatory retirement at age 60 and that just seems like yesterday. I read somewhere that a person's perceived life time is half over at age 21 and I think that there is something to that.
I know the feeling, GDR. If you're on a rocket, some of us are already on the jet plane.
I don't think the reason for this is biological, but that it's relativity. A year seems endless at age ten, because it's a tenth of your life, but at age sixty it's a mere sixtieth.
Make sure you enjoy that retirement as it speeds by, anyway.
This is an interesting place to hang out and a great place where I get to learn from people younger than my kids. (You're the same age as my youngest.)
When I look back I kinda wish that I had taken an interest in academics. At the time airplanes and girls seemed to hold a much greater attraction. I'm trying to make up for it now but not in a formal way. I just enjoy reading and discussing, (elementary science and theology), and then seeing what sticks.
I am Fourty-two (above)with my nephew at my cousinâ€™s wedding this past fall where (below) the Mall my Grandmother used to shop in has a store â€œall for Bradâ€, at least that is what my family said about it.
