Ground rush and growing older

Perhaps growing older is like jumping out of an aeroplane with a parachute. I understand that if you wait too long to pull the ripcord, the ground seems to suddenly rush up towards you. Hence the term ground rush.

Sometimes, as I grow older time seems to pass more and more quickly. Is this the ground rush of getting older?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
