Old Man

I'm now what most of you would call "an old man." If I didn't know my date of birth, I'd think I was still young. I feel young in the inside, but the truth is I'm old enough to be a grandfather to most of you.

I've been thinking about what I would do if I could be your age again.

I think I would make more mistakes. I'd be less serious. I'd be in less of a hurry. I'd waste more time and play more hooky. I think I'd take more trips, climb more mountains, and raft more rivers. I'd do a better job of noticing the world of nature - the change of the seasons and the coming and going of birds. I'd worry less and probably work less. I'd read more novels and listen to more music. I'd focus less on doing and more on being. I'd spend more time with family and friends.

Come to think of it, maybe I should do more of those things now.
