Aging through time travel (5)

Sat May 23, 2020 4:55 PM CST Aging through time travel
Time..when a child..endless. The school year is 30 months, summer runs away with no calendar until..what do mean, school is starting.
Mom used to tell me, as you get older, time goes faster. I thought silly. There are 24 hours to every day, 60 minutes to an hour. The sun rises and sets as it has for millions of years.
But, she was right. Now I get up, do something and, huh? Time for the news already? Months race past. It is the 1st, the 5th..uh 20th? And next week a NEW month?wow
I walk into the bathroom and my 35 year old self looks in the mirror. Time travel...a 70 year old stares back.moping When did that happen?! How did I get trapped inside this old person?
How can I think young and be old? Now a life time warranty doesn't mean much. What life, year, two, ten?
Screw buckets lists. Should have done that when young, not now. When I could walk all day, lift 100 pounds, run even! If it had mattered that much would have done it.
People say when I retire. I say what are you going to do, retire independently dead? I was married to a biker. Rough and tough til he met me around 28. Married cause he said been there, done that. And got MS at 39 and by 42 was bedridden. That was his retirement. Won and done. So he was lucky he lived hard when young. No bucket list for him.
Heard a finance guy once. Asked how much one would need for old age. He said well..this much for medical bills, this much for nursing homes. So THAT is what you work for? To make someone else rich and buy what THEY want. Bite me! Make sure you enjoy things before it is too late. Time travel only works one direction.wave

You write well and concisely, yes the time clock only goes forward and speeds up when you are happy and you have your loved one you made this man cry, but I'm not soft, I feel.

I am lucky, When he died I had my farm that said, cry later, there is work to do. I feel sorry for the young generations that have never known security. Their parents change houses, cars and even spouses like underwear. The kids learn impermanence, not roots. I grew up on my farm. The land changes at the same time it stays the same. I learned love and caring and what marriage means from my parents. Issues were dealt with, as a family. These kids know well time travel as they jump from house to house, parents to parents. They say you can't go home again. That is not true. Except for these lost generations where home is here and gone over and over.blues

The land has some permanence old pictures of farms have. Some relevance to how they look now but we drift into obscurity
