A Terrifying Dream
    #4244445 - 06/01/05 04:24 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Last night I dreamt I was helping an unknown, young girl of about six who had scraped her knee in the park. She looked up at me with big blue eyes and a sweet smile and said, "Thank you, grandpa." I woke up in a cold sweat, shaking uncontrollably.

Sounds like someone wanted to have children (and cute little 6 year old grandkids) but didn't.

What a beautiful dream. I'm sure you have some thoughts on it. I wonder if you would share them. :mushroom2:

My guess is something along the lines of a message from your feminine side.

You guys are too deep. It was about simple denial of aging.  :tongue:

Ha, You're probably right. Denial of aging is not so simple. Neither are dreams. We are about the same age. I think about it now. Letting go of the bodys youthful beauty and strength. I relied on that for so much.  ( I remember you telling me to suck it up. Aging ain't for sissys.) :grin:.

It's a good subject for a thread. Especially with all the youngsters here.  :thumbup: :mushroom2:

Letting go of the bodys youthful beauty and strength.

I didn't say anything about that! I will post an honest, headless picture on my 50th BD. Hell, my face is aging, but my body looks better than most guys over 25.

I am very strong and well-conditioned, but getting stiff (no not THAT way!). I doubt few here could keep up with me on a middle-of-the-day (112F) rough-terrain desert hike.

Despite that, I can feel the clock ticking...

I'd take you up on that hike gramps. Love the desert.

I am just wondering if I am supposed to buy a Buick with an automatic about now. Should I start learning shuffle-board? Should I give up the green for Jack Daniels and let go of my "hippie" ways? Do I hang here with the youth to feel younger? In short, should I "act" my age? Maybe, I should let my belly go and fully embrace middle-age? Have I not earned the right to be physically sloppy a la Marlon Brando?

I think we're talking about the same thing. I'm like you I exercised so much in my life I'm in better shape that many half my age. I can handle that walk across the desert. Walking is my thing. Heat has never bothered me much. Still, I have my second knee surgery comming up. I can't do what I did at 30 and how will it be in another 15 years?  Like you say, the clock is ticking. Actually I find the process facinating. I'm going to die and decay in body and there is nothing I can do about that. So were do I identify myself. Am I just that bod. Or is that a manifestation of something more? I didn't much think about this a 20. :mushroom2:

Please send headless picture. I want to put my dogs face on it and put it on the frig. :grin: :heart:

you still have about 15 years until you are officially "old", and even then you can look and feel young.

And becoming a real old man (with all characteristics) is a matter of choice, I've seem typical old people, and I've seen old people who only look old.

which part of being old scares you?

Fuck acting an age. I don't even know what that is suppose to mean when people say it as who sets the bar for what an age is suppose to act like.

I turned 37 a few days ago and it just fucked with my head. I do not like birthdays. Lets stay here with the youngins swami. Older people just talk about their health problems.

Who wants to hear about some ones gout?

I think we die because old people bore each other to death

which part of being old scares you?

Younger women no longer turn to look back and most of the women my age have let themselves go to seed or have w-a-y too much baggage. I truly enjoy solitude, but perhaps it is fear of being alone. I still connect with my ex, but that bond was permanently damaged by death and that is the saddest thing ever in my life.

My dad (75, also still a "jock" - he can STILL handstand walk down the beach!) watched his childhood and life-long friend degenerate with Alzheimer's. He said that scared him more than any cancer. He also stated that as a senior, one becomes invisible to society-at-large. One is seen as extraneous and no longer purposeful.

The ones who make themselves purposeful are seen and still a part of the life energy.

Thats why i don't like the idea of acting an age. It slowly removes you from being an active part of life. Retirement was one of the dumbest ideas ever.

Sometimes, i think about starting a program for retired people to volunteer at the schools.

Retires are a wasted resource and it doesn't have to be that way.

When I hear my mom say, "I am to old for that", I kick her ass into shape. It upsets me.

Why do people talk themselves into aging?
