Does anyone else have particular actions, thoughts or feelings when certain milestones of age are reached? Exhilaration...despondency inward reflections outward displays of emotion things to come things that have passed I have one of those milestones today and am just flat or even slightly left of center (not to be confused with how I approach life in general). I began work at 7:00am today and have already knocked out 1 set of final drawings and will finish two set of preliminaries. I work from home so the travel time to the office is fairly short, grab a coffee on the way to the other end of the house. No calls from family, friends or colleagues. The dog could care less but didnt expect anything else out of him. I began this post because it is to be the last photos of me in my forties. I see my contemporaries and am immediately relieved of my preservation, but it falls on blind eyes of those that I fancy. I dont feel (most days) that I am as old as the calendar indicates, dont think as an old man; though I have slowed some of my activities, I dont act as many I know my age. Oh and I still wear size 32 waist trousers. Nevertheless, somehow, it just doesnt seem right. Its 2:30 in the afternoon. I will stop work shortly. Im staring at a shot of tequila as a celebratory gesture. Just some random thoughts today. Do you have any?
