I don’t imagine that a lot of really young ‘uns read my blog but when you’re on the verge of 86 anything below 60 seems young.   I look back in amazement at the things I did in my 60’s!  So this is for the greying ones who actually do follow my blog and might be making decisions about their own future or, even, that of parents still living.

As an aside, I find my spam fascinating.  Bloggers all over the world want to provide me sexual enhancement drugs, narcotics, adult movies, et al.  They really put a lot of energy into luring folks to their sites but fortunately WordPress is very good at separating them out.  And for that I thank them.

So, young ‘uns, without a lot of commentary (actually none, because it speaks for itself) I invite you to contemplate and heed the wisdom in this lovely link with words by Anonymous and song by Josh Groban.  It is obvious to me that Anonymous has had some experience with the trials of aging.


[When] you were young you girded yourself and walked where you would; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands and another will gird you and carry you where you do not wish to go.   — John 21:18
