Sunday morning I woke up early, as usually. Took my coffee with a hint of milk, switch on my lap and started to read my mails. But, in the middle of my reading I stopped and I went to You Tube watch some video music. You know, I heard a lot of music around all day. When I was little I constantly imagine that life certainly must be perfect if we had our own life soundtrack. It was a blessing when walkman appears (I am from this generation, no Mp3 or 4, IPods in this time). I started listening U2 in early days. In a moment I jumped to the verve (Bitter sweet symphony), that I love this song, passing for Coldplay (Viva la vida) and the killers (Mr Brightside).
Yes, The killers, I know, poor rhyme, catchy song. But the video is cool and their music makes me feel good, in fact I love pop songs. I had a surprise when I saw the singer’s face. He looks pretty young. Curious, I never think in other people as young or old Unless when they are children or old age people So, I sadly conclude that I getting older Yes, my friends I am in a turning point I am not young anymore ,but in the other hand I am not really old. Is like a wicked opposite teen. Is pretty weird for not mentioned, scary….and I still having a great liking for The killers. In fact the music is a synthesis for my personal tastes. I love l ultramodern kitchen appliances, modern design; Avant Garde Theater, poetry and independent movies .My own husband is an IT developer
So, in a world where white hair means less and less and plastic surgeon are getting richer (I refuse” laminate” my face for one of those). I can’t see clearly would I can find my place in this world .Certainly I’ll be see as a freaky old woman. At that moment my husband went into the kitchen, getting me out of my thoughts, kisses me and said: “You look pretty and clever right now, I like how those glasses looks in you.” My entire existentialist crises are gone in this moment I no idea what will be my place in this world, yet. Maybe I became a clever and modern old lady, maybe not. But I am sure, the most important thing is that I will be a happy and beloved old lady
Grateful I decide feed his sweet tooth making this as a treat for him
