I May Be Used But Baby I Ain't Used Up

My 61st birthday. After the big six-oh, birthdays are a bit odd. Who are you at this age?  As a woman, it's certainly not clear what your role is in society, especially if you are not a mother, a grandmother, or career woman.  I will say there is a bit of freedom in realizing, there are less and less people living who really care about you.  It's becomes more apparent that we walk out of this world alone, eventually.  And that's not sad because at this point, you're less scared to leave.  But what do you do with the todays, the right nows?  
Thai delivery because some of us have birthdays in the bowels of winter when without sounding like the biggest bore, the best thing I can come up with is great take out.  Another thing about aging is you are boring without being bored, which again, sounds so sad but you care less and less about what things sound like at 61.

The decade of 60 is an unknown chapter, just like all of them have been.  The more life goes on, the less comfortable it becomes.  You've seen a lot but you haven't seen it all.  I guess you just have to keep showing up and see what happens.

Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anyone at home?
