But I have always had this secret power to tell the "actual age" of a person, just by looking at them. I think it has something to do with how far along they are in their life. Regardless of its duration. "Battery life %", perhaps. A psychic told me it's called Karmic age. Fifty years ago a friend's little brother, maybe eight years old, looked older than his father to me. He didn't last much longer, unfortunately. I saw a woman today, in traditional "years" she is half my age, but she is much older than I. I'm not referring to wisdom or old souls. More like time left on the clock. Sometimes it makes me sad, sometimes I shrug, sometimes, admittedly, I think; "great news" I'm special. But I don't care enough to tell anyone. In person.
