Sparkpeople sent me a birthday wish this morning, and the message was: "Don't just count the years, make the years count." There's an implied responsibility there that I'm not sure I like. Do I have to try so hard? Can't I just relax and enjoy the ride? I think I prefer a quote of Kurt Vonnegut's, which goes something like this: "...we were put here on earth to fart around, and don't let anyone tell you different."
As for counting the years: I'm 61 now, and it's been a pretty darned good ride so far.
