I remember hearing the line " how terribly strange to be 70" when I was 14 & how it made me shiver. I not that many years away from that now!!
@debutch The words to this certainly affected me differently as a teenager than they do today. I first heard this when I was between 14 & 15 & had just lost a friend in an accident & then my grandmother who raised me passed & at that time this song was comforting in a way I can't even explain...I'm now 61 and it feels so different to me than I thought it would...the song & being this age :-)
I know what you mean. The thought of being 70 at 14v was a terrifying one but after 'living a full life' , the thought of it now ( only 10 years away for me) , doesn't really bother me that much. Does that make sense? :-)
@debutch It does make sense...yes. :-)
Totally agree, @debutch. As a 61 year old, live the life and, other than that, what matters? Jam on.
@leejohnson Thanks... :-)
Since this seems to be the place for 60-61 year olds to reflect on the changing perspectives brought by time, I'll say that the years have flown but I'm okay with it and what's to come. Lovely commentary, Marissa.
I am still struggling with this whole age thing...scares me how fast the time flys by. Everyday is a gift...Great jam Marissa
