Life in the mid-50s is totally crap.

Every one of my parents' generation are now dead. Parents, uncles and aunts and their friends. This has been a decade of death.

All my old friends are ageing and growing tired. I have less and less in common with them and I think I have lost all of them now except two. Making new friends is virtually impossible.

My wife and I are heading towards our 60s and she's still my soulmate - that's sweet but sad to watch the slow decay in us both.

As I'm watching old music videos from the 70s on Youtube I remember what it was like to be in the early teens full of enthusiasm and passion for life.

That was 40 years ago.

Back in the day (80s) when we had hope that society could live without racial, social, political, and mental enclaves.

Break those walls!

Well you could always use your experience to make the world a better place... I lost my bestie last year. Cancer. Took a few months off in self pity. Now I feel like fighting again.

Sorry to hear your loss. I had a stepmother succumb to cancer, it wasn't pleasant to see someone decline that way. Fortunately my father's bounced back, remarried and quite happy with life. I went through divorce last year which felt like part of me had died. You just have to remember to appreciate every day... which is easy to forget.

Thank you both for your kind words. The thing I've always liked about our little forum is that I'm talking with humans.
