the gift of aging

another day granted
to gaze at the sky above
from the earth below

Aged Smile

  1. Few people knew me as a child, especially at school. I was a recluse and didn’t mingle with people. I attended an all boy’s high school so I didn’t date. I applied myself to schoolwork so that I could get a scholarship to attend college. It worked, I maintained a 4.75 GPA for 4 years and won an all tuition, fees scholarship to any state institution in Illinois. I enrolled in Southern Illinois University – Edwardsville. That was a really long time ago, about 45 years. Now I’m retired and a couch potato.

  2. Thankful for every day. Tis a gift this process called aging. Not the so-called wisdom that comes with it, rather the way our eyes savor more, I think, the everyday things around us.
    On to my luncheon tea………yes. I’ve taken to ginger-lemon tea or Tulsi masala chai decaffeinated in the afternoons. A little bit of spice added to the day 🙂
