…. it can’t be that time …..

Another One

Surely it can’t be that time again. Wasn’t it just yesterday or the day before that they congratulated me and gave me things and took me out for a meal and I put on a bright smile and said, “Thank you!” Where did all the time go? Has anything changed? Am I still the same? How can it all be happening again so quickly, exactly the same except for the number? One more. Each time, another one.

There was a time when I was proud of being able to add another one to the number. With any luck, there will be another time like that.

Thanks for reading this, but yesterday’s post was more interesting.

Oh, to go back to the time when birthdays took an age to get here! The big 4-0 looms for me….

After celebrating 60 of those numbers I know exactly what you are saying here. I am constantly perplexed at the speed with which the years pass now, Well done.

Yes – birthdays do change their meaning, don’t they? And there’s that long, long stretch of our lives when we don’t feel that we’re changing at all, and would just as soon go on with our busy business without noticing the birthdays. Good description!

This says it all…time does not stand still for anyone. Thanks for stopping by my blog Words are Timeless. I am glad you likes my piece Out of Time and the line. I have always felt death does wrap us in some kind of cocoon.
