I’m turning 40 today!

Today is my 40th birthday!!!

I actually feel a bit of relief at hitting age 40. I think part of it is that I feel like I am finally starting to not care as much what others think of me. I’m over feeling inadequate and responsible if someone doesn’t like me or gets mad at me.

Also, I must admit that growing older appeals to me somewhat because I feel younger women are hypersexualized so much in our society and I was always uncomfortable with that.

The only major drawback I see is your physical body breaking down more and more with age. That kind of sucks, especially when you already have a bunch of health issues.

Poetry – Touch and Go

I've already lost touch
with the younger generation,

but I've become unequivocally bound
to the passing of time.
