Man O Pause

I am 52 years old. Contrary to the saying 50 is the new 50. What make me suddenly think of age? Today I shot a basketball for the first time in more then a decade. I was consistently on target, though consistently hitting the front rim. I had my famous 1/2 inch vertical leap. Only now like all men, It would be an exaggeration to claim that it is still 1/2 inch.

Why is it that all of my friends have aged and I have not. I still think of myself as 25. The same things still bring me delight.

I'm still thrilled at a Ballgame. Only now the highlight is my seventh inning nap.

I still love Rock & Roll Music, and played at the intended volume, I can actually still hear it.

Some things have changed, or evolved, is a better word. I still have my hair. It's in a pile under the bed.

My favorite initials are still B.J. Only, I've finally realized that it stands for Ben and Jerry.

I still am not religious, although I now appreciate and enjoy my heritage far more.

It's not always comforting to realize that you're closer to the end then the beginning, until you realize that it's far better then the alternative.
