How Did I Get This Age?

W14 12 19 BOOBY GURL MIRROR OLD 1When did this happen?
When I look in the mirror I expect to see the thirty-ish woman
and do not know the face looking back at me.
I expect to see the naked body of my forties
and do not know whose sixty-ish body is in the mirror.
I hear the music and my body remembers dancing on the
sidewalk of Sunset Boulevard but my knees are arthritic now.

A moment in time; I’m sure all beings hitting their 60’s feel some of this.

journal with a Platinum Preppy fountain pen, Noodler’s Lexington Grey ink,
and Luma watercolor paints in a waterbrush.
