Getting Older

Last night I was waxing philosophical about getting older and the changes I've been making in my life. Today, my good friend Nikki mentioned that fact that we were getting older, as well. And it made me think of this quote from the The Guardian with Kevin Costner and Ashton Krutchner. I hope some day I have this same grace and sense of humor.

"Hell, I've always been old Ben. Ya' know what though, I don't mind. I mean if my muscles ache, it's because I've used 'em. It's hard for me to walk up them steps now, its 'cuz I walked up 'em every night to lay next to a man who loved me. I got a few wrinkles here and there, but I've layed under thousands of skies with sunny days. I look and feel this way, well cuz I drank and I smoked. I lived and I loved, danced, sang, sweat and screwed my way thorough a pretty damn good life if you ask me. Getting old ain't bad Ben. Getting old, that's earned."

I can sorta wrap my brain around this, until I fin more grey hairs, look closely at my wrinkles, and can't run on 4 hours of sleep like I used to!!
