On Turning Sixty.
There is something about turning 60 and beyond, that leads to the realization that we've completed (for some of us) almost 3/4 of our lives and for most of us, it is quite a jolt!
This is the time for summing up our accomplishments (or the lack of them)and a sense of loss for what might have been. On the other hand, It can be a kick in the butt for us to use the ensuing years to go for broke and damn the consequences and once again reach out for that elusive dream we once had...we've nothing to lose!
OR, come to the conclusion that the dreams of our youth were... and are...impractical in today's world at this stage of life, and really appreciate what is truly important.. It requires very little effort on our part, like appreciating the beauty of nature, great music, a child's laughter, a warm hug and really good friends. And oh yes..sharing .the precious gift of our artistic endeavors in the arts…Music, Poetry, Painting,etc., with others who do likewise.
LIVE in the moment…that is all that we have!
