  1. I will reach the same milestone in 18 months. In my case, getting older in itself is not a problem, but the realization that I very probably have less time in the future than I do in the past is a problem for which there is no solution. 😦

    You’re over the hill,
    So take a pill,
    Aches and pains,
    Always complains.

    Youth of old age,
    Demand the best wage,
    Relax and chill,
    You’re over the hill.

    Ride through Paris in a sports car with the warm wind in her hair.

      Not that I want to depress you, but human perception of most things is logarithmic. If we set t=0 at conception, then age 50 is 89% of the way to age 85 in terms of log t elapsed since birth. So assuming your life expectancy to be typical, you only have 11% of your experience of existence remaining. Enjoy…

  11. I’m so sorry. Commiserations.
