<timecheck>
yeppers, its that time-a yr .... gotta b-day in bout a wk, so w/ that delightful thot large in mahaid, i'll start this thread w/ sum-a my thots on age(ing)

western hemisphere calculates age based on the COMPLETION of a full yr, whereas eastern 'sphere, & many-a Native Peoples 'give credit' for each season - more *present* time, my mind works more like the latter, not former. so, when a dr asks my age, i can be wrong by as much as 2 yrs, dependin on what time-a yr i get asked. in my mind, i think 'im in xx yr' not 'im xx old'. i mean, HELLO?!? inna yer 1st b-day the actual DAY YER BORN?!?!?? (d'ya [ever] THINK?!?) so, the anwser to 'how old' *SHOULD* 'give credit' for all the 1/2 yrs, & 3/4's yrs, doncha think? - the ~older i get~, the more i admire {Lil Chil'erns!} - who instictfully know those *fractions matter!* - what almost-6-y/o DUNNA tell ya they're 'five-&-1/2'?
harumph!
so! even tho' *I*no im about to enter my 59th yr-a life, i can *only* ~claim credit~ four 58ys, but rite now, im *only* 57
or sumtin like that....
harumph!
so yes, havna yet Made A Choice bout how/if im ack!in my age - well, duh! i am, here, now (be!)
more stuff to share, but need to (yano it!) Get Flat for a bit

Hi reisha

Ooh sparkly new thread! I love what you've done with the place. :lol:

My heart is breaking over what happened in Las Vegas. I'm so sorry some of your old co-workers were there, although I am very glad to hear that they aren't seriously hurt. When things like this happen, it can be so easy to despair over all of humanity. What I find beautiful time and time again is the way that ordinary people respond. There were literally hundreds of people waiting to donate blood, having to wait hours just to do so, and other people providing food and water for those waiting. Those caught up in what happened helped each other as much as they could. Emergency services and first responders ran towards danger rather than away from it. My heart will always break when things like this happen but my spirit is buoyed by the way people come together for good. I hear you though.

Leaving a big ol' pile of hugs.

Hi Reisha,

I always admired Tom Petty as an artist. Sharing your sadness about his being gone from this earth.
