Old? Nah:-)

Today is my birthday,

and,

no,

the point isn’t to get,

all of you to wish me,

a happy birthday,

the point is:

I feel fantastic:-)

Here I am,

at a cross roads,

and,

a potentially scary turning point,

and,

yet,

I feel,

in full possession,

of my powers,

mentally,

physically,

creatively.

Don’t let anybody tell you,

48 is old,

’cause I’m here to tell you,

it ain’t.

My forties have been,

such growing years,

not always easy,

but,

difficulties,

have been met,

with more,

confidence,

less panic,

clearer head space.

I don’t bounce back,

physically,

from self-abuse,

like I used to,

but,

I know and appreciate,

my body more.

feed, water and rest it better,

than I ever have,

and,

I savour pleasure,

moments.

I look in the mirror,

I see,

a mature,

resourceful,

woman,

a butch,

with grey and a couple of wrinkles,

imperfect,

but,

living her life,

as true to herself,

and,

her principles,

as she can manage.

A lucky,

and,

yes,

blessed,

individual,

whole,

healthy,

and,

balanced,

mostly

đŸ˜›

I am proud,

of who I grew to be,

and,

of the work in progress,

that is my life.

Older?

sure.

Old?

not if I can help it

!!!

Later girls,

BB

I am a bookish butch in my very early fifties. I live in Montréal and always have. I used to run a small used bookstore. Reading keeps me sane. My latest jiggie is photography, book project in the works, living the dream

  1. Happy birthday BB! I don’t know if I realized how close we are in age – (I’m 7 months older than you). So glad you’re feeling so strong on your birthday. It’s a great feeling to look back at the lessons and changes of the past year and feel good about your life. I hope you have another fantastic year in store.
