The Movement of Time

Having recently gotten a year older, the aging process is becoming more noticeable. Not outwardly, I'm still the same charming fellow I've always been but I can tell my perception of time is changing. Old people like to talk about how quickly time passes as if this is some new phenomenon. The simple fact is a year is the same length as it was when we were five years old but our perception of it in relationship to our life has changed. A year to a five year old is 1/5th their life, to a fifty year old a year is only 1/50th of their life and thereby a much smaller portion of the whole. It's as if we were on a train that's always accelerating.
