Hot on the heels of our anniversary today I celebrate 47 trips around the sun (yes, we arranged them to be that close on purpose.) Do I feel my age? I do t really know what 47 is supposed to feel like so I can't answer that. I certainly don't act like it. Age has always been just a numb... colinwalker.blog

@colinwalker It matters until it doesn't. After a point, mostly mid thirties I guess, it's just the birth day. Oh. And many happy returns of the day! :)

@colinwalker Happy birthday! Congratulations on the anniversary, too. Just a number or not, I hope you're taking some time to celebrate yourself. :)

@colinwalker I'm turning 48 later this year, and I don't feel it (for the most part). I often wonder if this is how my dad felt when he was 47, and I wonder if he now really feels being 70, or not.

@retrophisch It’s weird. I look at previous generations (especially my grandparents) and think they had a more defined notion of what age meant, what you should be doing at different life stages and how you should behave.

@colinwalker you mean like retiring because you had enough of a pension / nest egg to be able to stop working ?

@JohnPhilpin It’s not even that, more general demeanour and behaviour and as it changes with age.

@colinwalker oh like removing hats when you are indoors / sit at the dining table?
