Three or four things that tell me I am getting old

1. I find myself taking more and more fotos of flowers, and other non-human subjects. When I was young, flowers would have bored me to death.

2. When I was told by Carin that the "Eels" concert was completely sold out, I felt myself not minding all that much. Formerly this would have really really mattered, a lot.

3. I see pictures of my friends' children's children on flickr. How can Jess who was 18 months old when I first met her, have a little boy who is that same age now? where does that leave me??

4. Sometimes, when I write a date on a form or on a cheque and don't concentrate, I find myself writing something like 1988...which does not seem that long ago.
