Life at 62 – Celebrating a Senior Citizen’s Birthday   Leave a comment


Sometimes being on Facebook makes you many cyber-friends and the friends you knew before the internet age. Getting many birthday wishes can be heart-warming and happy as you still have friends who remembered but from the reminder on the Facebook’s birthday list on the right column. So after getting more than 50 birthday wishes to-date. This is my acknowledgement on Facebook ….
“Thank you for the Birthday greetings, so I was thinking of this long-winded statements about my life to-date …
Life at 62 ( like Beatles’ song ” When I am 64 ” )
Life is smooth but sometimes sad passage,
If one can reach this age,
Loneliness strikes as missing loved ones,
My wife, my dad,
So very sad.
Life goes on so, must endure and enjoy,
Younger life was time to toil,
Not financially rich but not overly over-debt,
Still can sleep soundly but mostly over-slept.
( End of Part 1 – shall continue when I come back )
Bye”

Loneliness can be of one’s choice,
Or one can fill the home with happy, cheerful noise,
With two sons and three dogs,
With a helpful companion so I can still write my blogs,
Find solace in re-starting my photography.
Definitely a great consoling therapy,
Not completely to perfection,
But, doing it to my gratifying satisfaction.

Yes, there is so mush to write but to cut the story short. As Buddha expounded ” Life is uncertain but death is certain ” so we shall live on in whatever circumstances. Take life and death as one’s karma but live on positively – doing more good and lesser or no bad or evil deeds. Sadhu, sadhu, sadhu.
