It’s official. I’m 50. Actually, I’m 51-and-a-half, but I guess it took that long for it to soak in.
Actually, that’s not true.
I joined AARP (www.aarp.com – they’re not a sponsor) the minute I turned 50, to get their great rates on a phone plan. I’ve always felt young and intend to continue to do so, but want to live squarely in the moment, embrace my zeitgeist, if you will.
Zeitgeist – time ghost – “spirit of the age.”
Our zeitgeist is an ephemeral ghost – as time always is, but now, we live with the “ghost in the machine,”. The spirit of our age is the cloud, the search bar, the meta. Information vast and wide, as it has never existed before.
It makes me feel like a Time Lord from Dr. Who.
And we all know that the elixir of the Time Lords is wine.
