Sixty

1948 plus 60.

Birth plus 60.

When did I start to do this?
When did I start to acknowledge that my time past is greater than my time future?
When did I start to recognize what future means?
When did I start to conceptualize a future that I can create?
When did I begin making plans?

In my cancer days there was only TODAY. I reviewed the treatment plan. I asked the odds. I went through the prescribed, yet horrifying motions. I did what I was told.

Now three years post: Sixty.

Sixty.

1948 plus 60.

Birth plus 60.
