Momus, do you find yourself thinking more about death as the half-century hoves into view? In some ways 40 doesn't seem that different from 50, after all they're both solidly middle-aged type ages to be. But then the next milestone is decidedly different, 60 is the beginning of the end.

Think you're being too generous to fifty. If my fifties are anything to go by they mark the time when you become parent to your parents (illness, mortality), the kids are starting familes of their own, friends start dying, illnesses once acquired are hard to shake off, the body starts cracking up...

Sixty just looks like more of the same.

And, paradoxically, life s good!
