Today’s my birthday. I’m now 66 years old.
Funnily enough, that doesn’t seem old. I’m aware of having lived for a (relatively) long time, but that’s not the same as feeling old. I’ve been through adventures and misadventures, good and bad health, smart moves and some very dumb ones, and I’ve got the scars (physical and psychological) to show for the journey. For all the ups and downs, though, I’ve ended up in a good space. I’m a happy man.
All in all, it seems to me that 66 is a nice number. What surprises me is how much I’m looking forward to 70. 🙂
