    This is beautifully written, and for various reasons hits a bit close to home at the moment. Thanks for writing.Report

    A lovely essay.

    I’m lucky enough to have few goodbyes in the recent years. A friend from college, my grandmother… I’ve had more cats die than people and that’s pretty much a good thing.

    But my older relatives are getting older and I can’t help but notice how young the new kids at work are (coder co-worker is 21. TWENTY-FREAKIN-ONE.) and I look around and say “how in the heck am I in my late 40’s?”

    I only just got used to it being 1997.Report

    Thanks for reading, I’m glad you enjoyed it. I can relate to the age gap at work. I have a “Dave’s Not Here” sticker on my desk out on the docks. A very young engineer had NO CLUE what it was from or what it meant…oh well, time waits for no one right?Report
