This morning I called my "younger" sister and told her I was ready to launch my blog. I had not told her anything about my blog except just generalized statements. Even this morning I didn't tell her the name of it, because I know her---I know her.
I am not depressed to be my age, I do not feel like an "old people" and I don't think of getting older as a bad thing that is to be endured.
Without realizing it, my sister fell right into that trap of undervaluing age. The very thing this blog is going to fight - loss of a relevant life.
Oh, and here's a little note to my sister, whom I love dearly...you are younger than me, but you will be my age in just a few short years, so you need to keep that in mind.
OXOX to you all!
