aging is…..

“Aging is not ‘lost youth’ but a new stage of opportunity and strength.”
— Betty Friedan, author of “The Feminine Mystique”

One thought on “aging is…..

  1. Aging sucks. Especially if it can be relegated into the evolutionary wastebin, along with tailbones, gills and tiny skulls.

    Aging is indeed, lost youth. Who wouldn’t want the wisdom of years, coupled with the vigor of youth? If anything, opportunity and strength are squandered in our youth.

    Given the delayed maturity of children afforded by all of the Ages of Modernization, this is forgivable. What’s unforgivable is the failure of elders to impose more meaningful instruction to our immature sprats; choosing, instead, to coddle them and marginalize the natural competitive spirit. (Participation Ribbon, anyone?)

    Aging, in and of itself, may be an anomaly. As wild as that is to some, just remember that, in the not so-distant past, many of our garden-variety illnesses were a death sentence. Whether we resort to pills, lifestyle changes, medical procedures or spiritual re-alignment, fending off the effects of aging is an ongoing endeavor that may someday see the return of the immortal.
