Presbyopia/ Tempus Fugit

My family (minus the sons) went to the beach last week (daughters' spring break). Our tradition is to do at least one 1,000 piece puzzle during that week. Last year I had no trouble doing a puzzle. This year my vision had changed enough that I wished I'd brought reading glasses- couldn't focus on the pieces at the distance I was used to.

The steady drip, drip, drip, of mortality leaks on.

It's just like my wife & I say: No Loitering.

For better or for worse, presbyopia is a naturally occurring condition that happens to almost everybody in their 40s and 50s. I was astonished when I learned how many people are experiencing it...

The process of aging continues to surprise me, even though I should be used to it by now.
