Delights Of Age

A L O H A From Honolulu!

It is a mistake to regard age as
a downhill grade toward dissolution.
The reverse is true.
As one grows older, one
climbs with surprising strides.
George Sand

 The moments of happiness we enjoy take us by surprise. It is not that we seize them, but that they seize us. Ashley Montagu

I was walking with a friend 50 years ago. A very well dressed older gentleman approached us and told her sincerely that her beauty compelled him to honor her. He kissed her hand, and sincerely told my friend: "You are beautiful." Then went on his way....

...It is 50 years later. And
I only witnessed this. But
I remember that man,
that experience. Be like him.
Share with people. Let them know.
And perhaps in 50 years
they will still remember
the encounter and your words!

One of the delights known to age, and beyond the grasp of youth, is that of Not Going. Anthony Burgess

If I ever go looking

for my heart's desire again,
I won't look any further 
than my own backyard;
because if it isn't there,
I never really lost it
to begin with.
