for a topic?
Really, do you know? 'cause I forgot.
Lemme go look again. Oh, yeah...

not old. please. not old.
mature and more sensual.
wise and young at heart.

Gracefully aging.
Loving life more than ever.
Relaxed in myself.

I like the second better, if you want me to pick. But I think the second is a more practical one. Though both are very true. Would you really want to go through youth forever, at least in this mixed up world?

Mike LaRoche said...

It's a cliche but completely accurate: youth is wasted on the young. Although I'm not old (in my 30s), it's amazing what even just a dozen years have brought in terms of life experience and practical knowledge since I was in my early 20s.

Doom, if we stayed youthful forever, wouldn't the world be different?
But, no, I don't want to stay young always mostly because I know it can't happen but that doesn't mean that just because I reach a certain age I have to curl up.

Mike, I loved high school. And then life went downhill until I reached my 40's. Life is good now and getting better all the time.

Older than hell, yes
Wrinkled walnut skin I am
No fear no regret

You captured the true spirit of age.

Jean said...

Mark - no fear is something I greatly admire.

Jason - thank you, sir.

Bah,

There's snow on the roof.
But then, I have something else.
Fire in the furnace.

Jean said...

Well, then, Dave...you are set!
