The 70-Something blog will be four years old on Tuesday and that means that I will be seventy-four soon. I’m not sure which is more shocking—that I’m still writing what’s on my mind twice weekly or that I am about to be seventy-four.
For the record, this is my 420th posting. Maybe 85,000 words. Two-inches of single-sided printed pages (printed out because one can never be sure that the files on the Internet won’t disappear.)
Over the holidays, I looked back at those four years. There were themes I returned to often—my kids and their kids, my parents, Peter, my friends, current events that move me, and most important for my purposes, processing the fact that I am getting older.
I write for myself and for you. Thanks for reading.
