When Someone Not That Old Dies,,,
I was so surprised to open my laptop today and see the head line news in my inbox about rock singer David Bowie has died. He had just turned age 69 and he had been battling cancer for 18 months and that is what killed him. I didn't know he was sick. But, as I grow older, as I have hit my early 50s and realize now that I have truly reached midlife, I start thinking that I am not that much younger than he was. I am around 18 years younger than he was. It makes me think how fragile life really is and how he was not old at all. I used to think (when I was much younger) that people in their 60s were old. Now, that I am in my early 50s, I realize people in their 60s are not old at all. I feel like if a person lives to be in their 90s, that is officially old.
