Is it me or are people talking more softly now?
I used to be able (when I was a school teacher) to identify a single voice out of a group of people (important when people ie students plot against you). That skills is gone with my older ears.
Why is that?
I know a bunch of other tricks and am still able to see what is unfolding before it happens often (with kids). but I can’t hear the extra clues that used to make me better/faster.
I miss those ears.
Started me down the path of considering what else old doesn’t work as well as it did. My back hurts virtually every morning. Doesn’t matter what I do the day before, only that my back will hurt in the morning.
My eyes aren’t as good as they used to be – a function of age I know.
Aches that used to be for one day, now last three or four.
I have to take vitamins and protein shakes just to keep the whole thing moving forward.
Youth is wasted on the young.
