Two purposes come to mind. Most importantly, I want to bring to consciousness the secret thoughts about aging that are bubbling up in me. So reader beware: what I write on a given day doesn’t mean it’s some big truth; it could just be an opinion of the moment. For all I know, I might change my mind the next day, or I might discard the thought entirely; the idea might disappear, or maybe bubble into an BIG idea. If nothing else, writing, and particularly writing for an audience, helps me figure out what I mean.
Secondly, I offer these sporadic musings on a public forum in the chance they might help others makes sense of their own ideas. I always benefit from reading the thought process of others, so I figure that may be true for others.
Since I’m committed to short posts, I’m going to end this now.
