GETTING A HEAD START ON OLD AGE


Watching me trying on my mother’s silk suits before the mirror, Payson said, ‘are you doing your old thing now?’ And and I said, ‘yes, why not get a head start lest it catch up with me unawares?’

There are many times during the day, catching a glimpse of my body and face in the mirror, I am reminded (but not troubled) by my aging. I had a week before I started on my conscious aging process when a sight of myself in a photograph (like the kind I posted earlier wearing my mother’s clothes) sent me into paroxysms of despair and depression before I realized I had to face it head on instead of letting it fester inside me subconsciously.
