I keep having these moments of "huh, 72 is only 12 years off" - not panic or worry, just acknowledgement.

I feel that for someone who is 60 in two weeks, I'm doing pretty well, everything is working and doesn't look too careworn.

I've also had that sense that it's only a matter of time until it all goes west. Gotta do it now or thereabouts, you know?

jaq: well yes my thumb does still hurt sadly, though not as much and not much at all during ordinary daily work. i blame late-night hours of doomscrolling on a larger heavier phone but not so much that i've actually like curtailed this at all

christine: why still here? i do have friends in other internet spaces and learn stuff elswhere and find things funny elsewhere BUT i also stll have many friends here still, and also find find funny and sometime learn things here too! so that's why

good things abt being 60 and not in tiptop health: i got my first covid jab yesterday

Was I "in my thirties" when I first came to ilx?

And yet...

Happy birthday Mark G

mark s, I can sympathize due to some aching finger joints from similar (I blame phone + power bank combo).

Today, after following this project for years, I signed up: https://recompose.life/
