“The aging process is a part of most of our lives, and it remains one we try to ignore until it seems to pounce upon us.” ― M.F.K Fisher

I turn 45 this month. I’ve been joking with my mom about being “middle aged” now. She tells me, “No, no, people don’t see it that way anymore.” And I laugh, “Mom. 45 plus 45 equals 90. I sure hope this is middle aged!”
