Feeling a bit maudlin

cj Sez: Well, there you have it. I’m nearing another milestone and feeling a little maudlin. A birthday is coming up later this month. I have to say I’m kind of awed with the years I’ve accumulated. 

  I'll admit to being on the far end of middle age, so staying active is primary for me. I haven’t taught an aerobics class in years, but I still enjoy taking an hour-long class of low-impact circuit training twice a week and an hour of yoga once a week. 

  The rest of the week I get my rear out of the computer chair and spend time being physical around my house and two acres of yard. My goal for 2023 and beyond is to keep on keeping on.

  Here’s an encouraging quote from author Babette Hughes (In case you’re wondering, she’s way older than me.):

“Age is not a disability, it is a second chance at life. I’m 92 years old and Post Hill Press has just published my three-novel Kate Brady series; (The HatThe Red ScarfThe Necklace); I’m working on my fourth novel (Searching For Vivian) and fifth book, and am a frequent contributor to the Huffington Post.”

  Five years after that quote, in 2020, Hughes published 97 Speaks: Lessons From the Decades. It was her eighth book and second memoir.

  P.S. I plan to spend my birthday eating chocolate cake and taking advantage of free lunches and free desserts at more than one restaurant.
