It is really true, at least for me, that one's perception of time speeds up the older one gets. In many ways, this is still true for me. The months and years speed by, ever faster, slipping through my fingers. This was true of my past year, also, as much as any other recent year, even a little more so as it seems more so each year. However...in other ways, this year has been time out of time. I feel like I have been 44 forever, for my whole life, always. Like 44 is all there ever really was and the rest is a dream. So it is strange to be turning 45 today. I wonder if I will always feel 44.
Some parts of life are just not linear.
