I don't feel old either, at 72 - I used to think that was pretty old. And I'm certainly not frail, though bits of me don't function as well as they might. I smiled hugely when I read this from Ram Dass; he expresses just what it is that so delights me, sometimes, about aging. In my gloomy moments I think it is just because every day gets me closer to not being here at all. But really I think it's because so many things simply don't matter. Love matters, and I have had, and still have, that in plenty
