Fifteen years from now

To me, old age is always fifteen years older that I am. —Bernard Baruch

So true. However, putting humor aside, there is no harm in recognizing that you are an elder.  I use this word, to level rather than elevate, to counteract the sense  of embarrassment that sometimes links with old age.  As we age some challenges fall away and others take their place. The longer I can take care of my own physical needs and have a clear mind, I’ll be grateful.

Many thanks to Kim Russell of Writing in North Norfolk for inviting me to participate in her Three Day Three Quote Challenge.  This is my second quote post—the final one will be up on Thursday.  My nominees are:

Deirdre–Words are all I have

Amy–Bedlam & Daisies

Innervoice

Rules of the challenge:

  1. Post three quotes over three days.
  2. Name three nominees each day (no repetition).
  3. Thank the person who nominated you.
  4. Inform the nominees.
