it doesn’t seem fair to foist upon this simple day lily all of my silly-lily fears about marking another decade of life.
but that’s what’s on my mind as this decade comes to a close and the prospect of another starts to open ahead of me.
We give too much power to the aging process. We are the only ones who mark the coming of the next sunrise. Continue to live as fully as you have and the numbers be damned! Happy Birthday, I assume?
Oh, thank you, but not yet, next month. I can’t quite figure out why this one is causing me so much fuss and bother, but it is and so, prepare yourself, I may be working it out here…and you’re right about marking time, but letting go of those markers is more difficult than I had imagined. And there’s the guilt of surviving, and the fear of the end, yadda, yadda, yadda…the great thing about dying is that after you do, there’s nothing to worry about.
