Old Age

None are so old as those who have outlived enthusiasm. (Henry David Thoreau, 19th century naturalist)

It’s a sad thing, isn’t it, to see some elderly people rocking away the last days of their life, often in front of a TV that’s always on. There are others, no matter their age, who somehow find it possible to be as physically active as possible, always engaged mentally and interacting socially with those around them.

Now that I am old and gray, do not abandon me, O God. Let me proclaim your power to this new generation, your mighty miracles to all who come after me. (Psalm 71:18)
