Magical Sixty-nine

Well it doesn't sound very magical when written out, but 69 looks very magical when it's in numerals. I just turned 69. Generally I don't pay much attention to age numbers unless it means I could sign up to drive, vote, have Medicare.

To be honest, I have felt like I was 69 for most of this year as so many of my contemporaries, the ones I went to school with, my friends, my husband, already turned 69 which made me feel like I was too; but I actually only did it yesterday. It seems to me though that this is a special year for a lot of reasons, none of which bear any remote resemblance to logical.

There is the resemblance of 69 to the symbol for yin/yang which is the balance between male and female, shadow and light-- interconnected and interdependent.

In terms of numerology, which you get by adding and reducing until you can reduce no further, it's a 6.  Which is regarded as a mother number-- Numerology for 6  The vibrations for that sound very good for the year ahead.

And when I have lived it fully, done all I want to do in this year, I will come to a brand new decade (if I am among the fortunate) and be in my 70s. That's kind of exciting all in itself as it really is more of a gateway into true old age than 60 was, which for me turned out to be more like my 50s than anything that felt genuinely old-- even if it looked it at times. Oh there were definitely those added twinges and stuff about it taking longer to get it together when i needed to build up muscles, etc.

There is one more connotation to 69-- the sexual one, which is perfect for someone writing romance novels-- even if she is over the age where most consider romance to be appropriate. I never did go along with what 'most' think.
