  1. I’m now 67 and who can remember!
    All kidding aside I’ve never experienced any snide or invalidative comments about being old. The ones I’ve gotten were occasionally when I was much younger and I would say something that was positive and not negative I would get comments like “wait till you get older, you’ll see what I’m talking about” or ” You’re too young to know what I’m talking about” or “See me when you grow up”. I ignored all comments like this and I was right to do so.
    I’ve maintained and positive and creative atttitude throughout my childhood and straight on thru to now.

  2. I keep thinking I’m thirty–but what a surprise!
    When I face my mirror, I see other eyes.
    A wrinkle, a crinkle–one blink and they’re there.
    I feel in the pink but I can’t stand the glare.

    My jawline so soft that you don’t see the bone
    And where are the roses and where is the tone?
    I keep thinking I’m thirty–but though I’m no pup
    I sincerely believe that I’m not quite grown up…

    I keep thinking I’m thirty–though I know I’m not.
    I sway to the music–and not some gavotte.
    So–face in the mirror–with skin labeled “Dry”–
    You LIE!

    • I love your lyric Francesca! I love all your lyrics.
