When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.
:good:
Hope we're not there yet, I don't feel the need for purple.

I have always thought there are two classes of eccentric people, those who are naturally eccentric but don't know it and those who try to be eccentric just to be different. I much prefer the first one. Wearing purple to be seen as odd is in class 2.

We used to have a poetry corner but I fear it has been culled.

Love the poem.
When I am old and don't have to conform anymore, I hope to wear a rainbow of colours.

I agree with you Cathy. I know exactly what Jenny was going on about. That was why I had my ear pierced and considered a tattoo. Come to think I go for brightly coloured clothes as well (but not purple). A natural consequence of age is that you gradually become invisible. The poem is a protest against this. (Do not go gently.....)
I love it.

Commiserations to you, Ian. It is hard to find words for something like that. Peace and love and harmony to you. Remember and celebrate Dan's' life.

My sister died in the early hours of this morning, just had a message from my niece. Not unexpected as she was in hospital and not responding to medication, she was 75.

Sounds like a release Ian but still the wrong sort of news. Very sorry to hear it and I know you will cope well. Sooner 2019 finishes and the better for you! You've had your share of it and more.

Thanks for the thoughts and wishes.

I never wish my time away Stanley.

Jennifer has requested no funeral and a simple cremation from information received from my niece. It will be followed at some point by a scattering of ashes sometime in the New Year. Undertaker is calling on Julie today so I should know more later or tomorrow.

You are right about a release and that is how I view it as well. Dementia took my sister over three years ago now and she was comfortable and well cared for which I take comfort from. It's a cruel disease and one she is better off out of. She will join everyone else I have known and loved and carry on in my thoughts although no longer with us.
