It feels odd to become the superseded generation, as our children start off on their life paths. I can remember myself at that age, when my parents' lives barely registered on my radar. Our role becomes that of the interested observer, close to the role our parents, if surviving, still take in our own lives.

I'm not ready to pack it in. I enjoy the activities & opportunities I have with my own generation and look forward to being able to direct more time into their pursuit. Still, it is funny to scan my list of facebook friends and see how many are within a year or two of the half century mark. Not so funny is the realization that actuarial time & chance has begun to whittle down the pool of survivors.
