One More Day
August 20, 2011

Repose is not more welcome to the worn and to the aged, to the sick and to the unhappy, then danger, difficulty, and toil, to the young and the adventurous.
—  Fanny Burney

Within the same week, a ten-year-old boy made a solo flight across America, and a woman who was sover eighty climbed Mount Everest.  Some of us don’t aspire to such mind-boggling events.  But there is a time for more adventurous quests and a time for quiet.  They don’t have to be age related.

Sometimes our concern about age may be more limiting than our physical capabilities.  “Should a person my age be actiong like this?”  “I think I’m too old for that.”  Thoughts like these prevent us from exploring and learning and acquiring new skills.  We can choose our direction, regardless of age.

I will set aside age prejudice when I look at the possiblities before me today.
