I feel like my heart and mind are in sensory overload. If you were to crack open my skull, you would see that my learning curve is pretty intense these days. Who would have thought that my life lessons would be continuing so dramatically into my senior citizen discount era?
Back when I was just twenty or so, I heard a guy speak who was well into his seventies. He was so alive…so fresh. He wasn’t intimidated by youth culture and the change they championed. He had a quiet confidence about what he believed, but graciously made room for those who thought and acted differently.
He boldly stated he didn’t have all the answers, but I looked at him as one of the wisest men I had ever met. Funny how that goes.
I remember thinking how amazing it was to be that old in body, but that young in mind and heart.
He never knew it, but I wanted to be like him.
I still do.
