The processes of aging starts the moment you leave the womb but of course you have all that distracting growing up getting in the way of the fact that we are all going to die! The older you do get you start to notice things are not quite the way they used to be. For many it is hair. Where there used to be long locks now there is the appearance of an ever increasing forehead. For others it is the fact the clothes that used to be comfortable are now are too tight. The whole process never slows down just as time seems to speed up – ‘…where did those last ten years go?…’
In our modern fully connected social media world where seem things move even faster than they ever did it is rewarding to read someone who also finds things just too absurd. This morning I was reading the ever wonderful Caitlin Moran’s celebrity watch in the Times and her recounting of the trials of Yorkshire Tea. In this polished diamond in a crazy crazy world she distilled the madness of Twitter into one question… are you Shouting at Tea?
Sometimes I think I might just be.
