A DECADE FROM NOW
I recently turned 77 and feel increasingly chronologically enhanced. Thinking more than a month ahead is not something I aspire to do.
When I was young, I looked to the future with some anticipation and excitement and, on occasion, longed for time to pass quickly so I could get to where I was thinking futuristically.
Now that I am a very, very old man, my reflections are more back through the “rear vision mirror“ to where I’ve come from. Contemplating ageing, which aligns with contemplating the future, is somewhat offputting.
When somebody is very old, they may not like contemplating the future. It’s simply adding on in an ageing sense. I so thinking about the future is something I find worrying, for I don’t know what lies ahead for somebody moving from the septuagenarian years to the octogenarian years.
