For A Limited Time Only...


When you hear the news that an old flame has passed away, it can be a bit of a surprise, especially when they were several years younger than yourself. It also doesn't help the situation when you're contacted by your ex, via text, email and facebook, informing you that an old friend has also died, when you already knew from another source anyway. The thing about this getting older lark is that you have to accept the fact that people you once knew will end up dropping like flies during your senior years. Not only does it tug at the heart-strings; being sad for the families they leave behind; but it can really make you sit up and take notice of your own mortality.

I now have more years behind me than I'll have ahead of me, which is a rather unpalatable truth I'd rather not dwell on too much. However, when your exes start popping their clogs it's time to pull your metaphorical socks up, stop wasting time on people and things that are never going to enhance your life, and make the most of every moment. Carpe Diem...
