Calendars are handy when it comes to reminding us what date it is, when we have to do something or when we might want to celebrate an occasion. Other than that, being overly vested in the days, weeks, months and years that are declaring our chronological age may prevent us from being open to untold opportunities and possibilities. I really believe that we’re never too old to try whatever it is we want to do. My best friend is 76 year old ‘Aunt Judy’ to my children. They’ve always thought that she’s a bigger kid than they are! And you know what? They’re right! Judy is a lot of fun, always up to get out and meet people and her exuberance towards life —along with her very active career as a ghostwriter— make her seemingly ageless to anyone who meets her. Abraham Lincoln understood this idea. He said, “It’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” So, since we all woke up today, we still have time to get living. The calendar, other than reminding us where we might need to be at some point today, is irrelevant to our degree of life satisfaction. Our satisfaction is best measured in other ways… So, as RENT playwright Jonathan Larson (who died the day before the first preview performance of his ultimately blockbuster play) asked, “Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes. How do you measure, measure a year?” Tell me. I’d like to know…

We’ve got a great discussion going here for those over fifty; (over 50), the elderly according to society; seniors to some; just plain over 50 years old; fifty plus …or anyone alive and rocking life who simply wants to come to this party!
