Do you ever have a day where you just can’t stop smiling? Maybe nothing specific or gigantic happens, but you just feel like you are going to explode with joy?
I’m starting to understand the enormity of growing old. It’s not just about
creaking joints or regrets. It’s about friendship, memories, understanding more about how life ticks, better orgasms, laughing in church when the spirit moves you (even if the spirit is only moving you), collecting leaves on a walk just BECAUSE THEY ARE THERE, leaves everywhere, lying in the road, all these fabulous colors and damn it! They deserve to be laminated, turned into postcards and mailed out to old lovers.
