Comedian Larry Miller talks about getting older.

Life would be infinitely happier if we could only be born at the age of eighty and gradually approach eighteen. ~Mark Twain

I’m easing into the fact that I’ve surpassed 45 and am approaching 50. (OMG!) Accepting it. Being grateful for it. Breathing through it. Looking past the gray hairs appearing in my eyebrows of all places. Or am I? Why do we (well, some of us) care about how old we are?

    This is a bit stolen from George Carlin almost word for word. What happened to originality?

  2. Really? How rude! I bet George is at least 10X funnier. I'll see if I can track it down. Thanks, Charles!

    Hi Lynn,

    Isn't it ultimately about our "energetic age" – or is that just an avoidance tactic we use? 🙂

    David Wilcox has a wonderful song about living life & relationships in reverse. It's called "Start with the Ending"…
