I was 51, post surgical back X3, and found myself on a mobility scooter in Walmart just to get around. After I wedged myself into the perfume aisle and had to be pulled out followed by driving into a large stack of rubber balls in the toy section causing chaos and a clean up on 3 aisles, it occurred to me I might be getting old. And yes, Paint, we don't bounce at that age...we break.

I have since embraced my inner "Crone". In my tradition, that is a badge of honor. I realize how blessed I am to still be around as many people don't get the gift of long life.
You might be par feline too with the many lives you’ve had.

You know the best thing about getting older??? You see clearer. Not with your eyes, but with your intuition and wisdom. And you don't care what others think of you. I think we become much more our real selves without the mask as we age.
