The "27 Club" sadly has a new member. Up until this week and the news of Amy Winehouse's untimely passing, I had not been aware of such a coincidence of age. Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison all were 27 when their lives were cut short. What is it about 27?
Lately, having experienced my own Saturn Return nearly ten years ago, I have been musing about how my age has affected my own perceptions. One thing's for sure, it has been sobering because hang-overs now last nearly a week! But while I miss my much-more-fit, what-was-I-complaining-about-back-then body from my twenties, I much prefer my mind at this age. There's a reason I didn't attempt to write a novel in my twenties. In fact, come to think of it, most successful novelists are past a certain age - and not because it takes so long to write one!
Here's the link about Amy Winehouse and her missed Saturn Return:

"Wrinkles only go where the smiles have been." Jimmy Buffet
After this summer, I'll most likely have earned a few more wrinkles ... either from the smiles or from too much sun exposure!
