I don’t generally feel old (although perhaps I should!). And yet every once in a while I see something or hear something that puts me in my place.

I saw this picture on Instagram last week from @Letterfolk.

First of all – I literally did the math on those numbers because I thought there was no way that could be possible. (jokes on me – the numbers add up!)

And then I felt old.

I was born in the early 80s and it really doesn’t seem like that long ago. I see the girls walking around the high school campus today and they’re wearing the same thing we wore in high school. Never in a million years did I think clunky Dr. Marten shoes would make a comeback and yet here we are. How can 1980 be that long ago!?

What’s crazy is thinking that the time from 2021 to 2062 is the same as 1980 to 2021. Its a gentle reminder that life is long, but time is short!
