Wordless Weds. = Tuesday Toes
No poetry today, but a question. Have you ever felt like you've had a second birthday? A "rebirth" worthy of commemoration every new year? I think mine is 10-10-10. I have many reasons why, some too private to post here. But here is a fun reason why: I choose it as the start of the second half of my life, as a birthday of my own decision. It has a logical reason for a landmark, it is 9 months exactly after my 50th birthday. If we look at the average life expectancy for the year 2060, it might be 100 years of age! (Whether that statistic is for those born that year, or of a certain population, I don't know. I just looked at points on a graph and continued the graph another 15 years forward, and 10 years older.....)
It is food for thought. I am impressed with the 90-year-old women I meet today! So, don't get me wrong, I don't want to live to be 100, just looking at the 2nd half of my existence with a new life....
What would be your second birthday? Write about it.
