Just like our parents?

As we age into our 40s, time seems to follow two themes.

One is that it doesn't seem all that long ago that we did the crazy things we did at age _____ (20? 25? 39?).  The other is a grim realization that we are becoming - as Pink Floyd put it - "shorter of breath, and one day closer to death."

The 40s are that age when we look in the mirror and see our parents.  As children, we remember what mom or dad looked like when we were kids.  I caught a glimpse of myself the other day and, for a moment, wondered why my dad was looking back from the reflection.

Wierd.  Or just getting older.
