I’m Sixty-Four

Well, sixty-four years ago I transitioned from another dimension to this one. I was immersed in a aquatic environment inside my mother’s womb, and came to this beautiful paradise. Like everyone else, I learned to breathe pretty fast.

Where did I come from? This is one of those good questions for which I know I will never get conclusive answers, but, still, I keep asking because I love to explore. Did I make a conscious choice to come here? If so, where was I, and what did I come here to do? Did I receive an assignment, a mission to complete here? Did I choose my family and the people in my life? Did they choose me? Did we agree before coming to this dimension who would be mean and who would be kind; who would wound and who would heal? Who knows, right? So many questions, so few answers.

As you may have noticed, I agree with the saying of Socrates, “An unexamined life is not worth living.” It inspired me to call my blog “Exploring and Inspiring,” and I added to it, as a subtitle, “Paying attention and living a life that is worth living!” I feel I am doing just that.

Yes! I’m sixty-four, and this reminds me of the song “When I’m Sixty-Four,” written by Paul McCartney, and released in the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album in 1967. I was fourteen years old then, and that was half a century ago. And here I am now, five decades later. The future that I couldn’t have imagined then, and was so distant, has arrived. Fifty years have gone by really fast. I can’t phantom that I have already lived 23,376 days.

I’m sixty-four now. Wow!

Life is good! Life is great! I love my life and I love my wife! It is time to celebrate!

When I get older, losing my hair, many years from now
Will you still be sending me a valentine, birthday greetings, bottle of wine?
If I’d been out ’til quarter to three, would you lock the door?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I’m sixty-four?

You’ll be older too
And, if you say the word, I could stay with you

I could be handy, mending a fuse, when your lights have gone
You can knit a sweater by the fireside, Sunday mornings, go for a ride
Doing the garden, digging the weeds, who could ask for more?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I’m sixty-four?

Every summer we can rent a cottage
In the Isle of Wight if it’s not too dear
We shall scrimp and save
Grandchildren on your knee
Vera, Chuck, and Dave
