Bullseye! How well you have expressed the aging process I am now living through. I now really don't care about what strangers think or worry about whether the way I look conforms to their ideas of what is proper. I relate to many of the fears as I outlive some of my friends and fear my husband's light is dimming. It does take courage to confront the fear that you may need to finish aging alone.
