Just Another Day …….. Just Another Year
I sometimes wonder why l ever used to get excited about this time of the year? In years gone by, and perhaps fifty years ago maybe l was excited. Forty years ago, l most assuredly wasn’t excited, it was of course just another year, just another day, and just another life or time of the life or even lifetime. People say it cannot be a lifetime as you are not yet dead but of course it is l chunter back with enthusiasm!
If you are 16, then you have lived 16 years, that is your lifetime, it’s not like you’re 16 going on 90, so therefore you cannot say you are 90 lives of age, if you have only lived 16 of them is it?
So here we are, l am not you, although if you are reading then, then it is the proverbial we, so we all are, looking at the time 12.51 am and 36 minutes ago, 56 years ago, l came into the world. 56 years later and here l am 36 minutes after my entering, pondering on where is the excitement?
