  •  At 50 ..you are the pearl in the oyster (4+ / 0-)

    At 60 , you start wondering where the pearl went and you realize then you have become the oyster.  IMO.  Something dramatic happens at 60.   Maybe you realize no one really lives to 120 so middle age talk is out of the question.  

    Happy Birthday.

      That's both exciting and ponderous. Strangely, I look forward to it!

        in my life started at 50.....Old enough to enjoy and appreciate.   I cannot even begin to tell you how much excitement and rollercoaster ride the 50's were.  From Nashville, to Washinton DC, to adopting, ..just a whirlwind.
        Not one dull moment.  Some heartache, but never dull.
