today is elder abuse awareness day

i am 18, life is fun.
i sure hope i will
always be young.
now i am 22,
being an adult,
so much to do.
now i am thirty or so
where did my carefree
teen years go?
now i am 45,
... a little slower,
but glad to be alive
now i am 60,
so fifty seems so
time went too fast,
what did i do with it?
now i am 80,
no excuse,
people ignore me
or worse,
there is abuse

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
