9 June 1961
Okay, so I've changed a little in the last 50 years. Make that, a lot!!! I cannot believe I am 50 years old today. It just does not seem possible. I do NOT feel 50, I do not look 50 (though if this is what I look like, then this must be what 50 looks like,) so there must be some kind of a mistake. (However, the calendar and my mother say differently.) Michael J. Fox, Johnny Depp and Natalie Portman also have birthdays today, so I am in good company.
I particularly like the quote I put on my Facebook page this morning:
"It takes a long time to grow young."
So, I will continue to grow young, even as my actual age may say something a little different. Like they say, it beats the alternative!!!
