Just had to mention Madonna's 50th . . . seems like the world keeps aging . . . what's that about? Eventually we'll all catch up with each other, believe it or not.
And, yes, friends out there, you, too, will turn 50 someday. And hopefully you'll still feel fabulous and live a fabulous life. The picture of me on my default icon was taken a couple days after my 50th. And there's never a day I get up and think "I'm old"; in fact, I'm shocked when I hear a reference to it.
I still remember having one of the princesses refer to Madonna as "old" in a newspaper interview some 16 or 17 years ago. I remember giving her hell about it. And just think, now that girl is older than Madonna was then, and I bet she doesn't look or feel near as good as Madge does at 50.
Age really is
a state of mind. And if you can keep your body healthy, there's nothing to fear.
