Do You Feel Your Age? The Series.
Is age just a number? We were at a dinner party and the hosts' teenagers came bounding over. As we talked about their classes, sports teams and parties, we realized, wow, they must think we are old, (thirty-somethings avec bébé). But, we thought, how could they? We remembered what it was like to be 17?!
We decided to start a new series. Actually, we were inspired by a conversation with a close friend. And, so we embarked on a journey, canvassing people we know from far and wide to find out what age they felt like. We were surprised by the range of responses. Some people felt their chronological age. Full stop. Others felt different ages at different times of their lives. A few felt petrified of "milestone" ages. Some embraced the difficulties of not "achieving" certain things by a certain point or were at peace with the difficulties of "adulting." If you'd like to submit your thoughts, send us an email. We'd love to hear from you. There is no minimum age or maximum age to submit. Over the next days and weeks we will be publishing the series- we have a sneaking suspicion you will enjoy it.
