I just turned 50 yesterday.
Odd how when you’re a kid 40 or 50 seem soooooo far away; yet once you reach them, it doesn’t really feel like that long ago you were a kid. Of course, the scary bit is realizing that you only have a couple or three good decades left on the planet, if you’re lucky.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not depressed or anything like that about my age; just feeling a little philosophical. I do wonder about what the future holds as I age. I have no children to care for me or even to shunt me away to some care facility to be forgotten. This is something I will have to plan for.
On a brighter note: I have confirmed my spot on two panels on the readers/lit track for ConNooga. I’ve posted my current schedule on the Appearances page.
