When? he asked. When does middle age end and old age begin?

"When" he asked, " when does middle age end and old age begin?"

It took awhile to recover from his question.

Summer Sunset.

The sky tonight looks like a watercolour with a pink wash over it . A little too bright in some spots, barely there in others. Positively exquisite. It was a lovely weekend

Earlier this week I stood idly  waiting for a bus at a riverside stop. My mind wandered. The sun was warm, the sky clear blue, and then with a sudden breeze clouds of fluff dancing around me.

Fairies! my delighted inner child exclaimed as blizzard like, I was engulfed in mists of fluff.

People 45-64 years of age account for 25% of the Canadian population. Women 55-59 6.2% in 2005

In 2008 someone in America turned 62 every 7 seconds

I found these stats in my draft folder. I'm not sure if I ever published them but they are still true. There was a time, a few years back, when I was yet again unemployed when I asked myself "where the people like me," were. Eventually I decided not to care as there really are no people like me just stats.
