age in dreams
(al)most ancient

It was in a recent dream, I found myself looking in a mirror, and the face looking back at me was a very very very old woman: the number that comes to me is 170. And within seconds of waking I knew I had seen the reflection of my mental age.
I am days from a little four zero, but I look much younger: always have, probably always will (I hope (I am quite kind to this body!)). When I was 31 there was a lady at my day job who thought I was 21. My skin age is also around the same age (there is a test for that, which I have done several times).

I wonder what my reflection will look like in my dreams when I reach 120 (if I live that long). =-0
