- Run and Hide
- Try and avoid looking in the mirror
- Be like my cats and don’t look directly at my reflection
Really, I don’t see the person I “feel” like. Where is the care free guy who was 20? The dude that finally got married at the age of 45? The responsible aggressive corporate citizen who tried, and succeeded to an extent, to climb the corporate ladder? The retired senior world traveler? The responsible volunteer taking cancer patients to their treatment center or delivering meals to the needy?
Every day I see a different person in the mirror. Does he have a mustache today? Long hair or short?
Wrinkles? Of course. Grey hair? What else. Body is doing its thing in the aging process but I will put up a little resistance.
When I look in the mirror I think “how much longer”. I have a small say in things but there are too many variables that I can’t control. Never did see that motorist that ran me over and broke my pelvis on a bike ride. Too many close calls that have gone my way. Next call could be the one I never here.
