The age of reason
Getting older has its
advantages but they are
especially while the memory of
your free spirited youth is still
relatively fresh in your mind.
With the fog of advancing
years not yet completely
obscuring the recollection of a
carefree attitude and youthful
exuberance, it is often hard to
see your advancing years in
anything but negative terms.
But if you can ignore the
aching knees and cope with

look at us like we’re some
a leftover from a time when
dinosaurs ruled the planet. But
the advantage of age is that,
through almost no conscious
effort, we’ve learned stuff.
Much of this knowledge has
mostly by watching others who
knew more than we did.
The youth may have energy
but we, dear wrinklies, have
And that is something a
mountain of money cannot
It is also something that young
people either don’t appear
interested in or think they
But just you wait.
They’ll realise the error of their
time their knees pack it in.
