Birthday Post

A short one for my birthday (apologies to the original author, as I do not know where I read it so many years ago…..)

“All wise men fear……

1) the sea in storm

2) the night with no moon

3) the anger of a gentle man”

(author unknown)

They say “you’re not getting older, you’re getting better.”  This, like so much else in life, is all about perspective. Depending upon how I choose to view this statement, which filters I apply, there is both truth and lies in it. There are a great number of gifts upon which I can count on this 62nd birthday (one, by the way that firmly entrenches you in the 60’s!) and some number that continue to slip away from me. Life is about balance, as is aging and birthdays!
