Today l am 56 years of age
15th May 1963
I am somewhat cynical at these so called special days, to me it’s just another day – just another year – just another lifetime to add to the current lifetime total!
However l thought l would do something different for Random Quotes 313#

Time is such a funny thing, it passes so quickly? Does the world move faster as we become older? What’s one day in a year full of 365 of them? What’s an hour in a day filled with 24 of them, and each hour is 60 seconds and yet each day is only 86,400 of those very same seconds, a year is 525,600 minutes and in seconds it is 31,536,000 – when you look at time like that, little wonder it seems to pass so quickly eh? However, today is no different to yesterday, and tomorrow will be the same as today, so in all time is only relevant to speed when you effectively fill those burning seconds, today for me is just another day

When l was 20, l said to my mother that at 50 l would be older, happily married and a granddaddy – Well l am now 50, and one for sure, l am older!
Another Day, another year
Today is no less a day than yesterday, and no more than tomorrow!

If you look over the years, the styles have changed – the clothes, the hair, the production, the approach to the songs. The icing to the cake has changed flavors. But if you really look at the cake itself, it’s really the same.

Think Trees Not Children!
NB: This was said as a statement during a conversation concerning the state of our world, and it basically meant, if we don’t think about our children in a much broader fashion and lowering emissions, they’ll not have a world to grow up into.

Mm, l only had a year at being 52, not long enough. Will see if the year at being 53 works more to my favour!
The great thing about getting older is that you don’t lose all the other ages you’ve been.

The problem with being political is all in your tilt – do you tilt to the left or to the right? I tilt to the left – environment and animals – tilting to the right – mankind and mass destruction appeals not – but above everything else it’s the people l can not stand.

This is so very true, but people forget about finding their passions, following their dreams, searching for their chosen element of speciality. Every day you are presented with the opportunity to do something unique to create yourself again, take it, splash out, do something new.

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 can you?
So here we are, l am, not you, although if you are reading this, 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?
Just Another Day …….. Just Another Year
Just Another Life
Just Another Age
Where’s the excitement in that?
Now just because l am a cynical husk of yesterday, doesn’t mean the reast of you have to be, so have a totally, totally, terrifically awesome day!
