Too much to do, and anyway the "second half" isn't guaranteed so why would I act like it's all downhill from here?
Then I read this bit of loveliness, from an older gent who takes a test drive around Houston's Loop 610 to make sure he's still okay to drive. He's 90. I've been on that road, and it's NOT fun, but if he's testing himself on reaction time and eyesight and hearing-- I think he's probably okay to keep going.
I had to write to him. I don't want to be "halfway through" this life (or worse, more than halfway through!) and I hope I'm just like him as I grow up. Hale, hearty, and interested in all life has to offer.
|When I drove this, it was the day before Thanksgiving. Shudder...|
