Thread Name: What counts as young?
Subject: RE: What counts as young?
I'll be 68 next month, but I'm still backpacking and skiing and playing music. When my late father read his paper, he always looked at the obituaries first. He said, "If I don't see my name in there, I go in the kitchen and have a cup of coffee." I won't settle for that - just surviving. Most of us have known people who seemed "born old." Some of it is genetics, much of it is attitude and activity.
I see young performers and enjoy their enthusiasm and energy - and pray they keep that flame burning as the get older.
