Beings you still seem at a young age to me, who has gone already into the old age years and has found the water is actually not that different-- okay I lie. There are differences and 60 did bother me. I had gone past 30, then 40 and 50 with nary a notice but 60 seemed significant (wait til you have to sign up for Medicare... now that really makes you feel old). I think these years though have a purpose and they are a good time to think about what might come next and become comfortable with it.

One of the women, whose blog I read, had her heart begin to fail in February. She has been through a lot of suffering in an attempt to survive but it was not to be. She died this week-end. She was only a couple of years older than me; so it definitely is an age to remind ourselves the end is closer than the beginning (although it always could have been at any point given the uncertainty of life). You might check out my blog on this lady, Maya's Granny, and then go to the link where her daughter put a dream she had shortly before her mother died. I think the dream was showing her how it is for her mother now.

Because of assorted experiences in my life (not near death for me) I don't believe life ends with physical death of the body. I also won't claim to know what comes next, and recognize that nothing might come next, but her daughter's dream was an encouragement to my belief that there is more. It's what I'd like to think, but I am practical enough to know truth and what we want do not always mesh.

Brian. You should read the short novel by William P. Young "The Shack". I happened on your blog doing a search on "Align probiotic", and read today's posting just by 'chance'. Pierre
