aha vs. oh no
Today is my birthday, let's not discuss age,
so many years, like mileage on an older model car,
which has its peculiarities.
To open the door, jiggle the key.
To turn on the radio, hit the dash.
After a while, these adjustments become the norm.
Until I drive another car.
These compensations are not necessary.
This is an aha moment.
I am jarred when I look in the mirror
and am faced with what gravity has created without my permission.
I don't recognize this ungracefully older me.
This is an oh no moment.
Quite a difference, it relates to what is within my control.
Aha is teachable, oh no is reachable with lots of cash and a good doc.
