THEME DAY--AGING


Although I am currently in Seattle, I've been a bit housebound due to daughter's new baby, so I'm posting this photo from last winter in Belgrade.

Aging isn't for sissies, so they say, and it's even harder for some.

yes aging can be difficult. Fortunately for my family aging is a much happier experience. My grandmother lived until she was 106 and was in relatively good health until her last days. She stayed involved with her church and was often found in the garden with her flowers. my mother passed at an earlier age but had wonderful life up until the last few years. The same was true for my father. As my wife and I approach retirement we look forward to the life we see ahead

This is such a sad scene. This woman appears to live a very hard life.

I hope you are enjoying your time in Seattle and that you are having a great time meeting the new baby.

It's startling image, imagining the story of the life behind the the person. I'm grateful for living where I do and not fearing the growing older process.

Is there anyplace where we can't find something like this. Yes, aging is not for cowards but it will happen to them, too.

I think a big part of aging is frame of mind. Great shot.

You've gone from one end of life to the other with your last post and this one! I rarely give money to street people (prefer to give to charities that help them), but I'm a sucker for an elderly person who's down on his or her luck. Just hope I age as well as my mom has (she'll be 95 next week).
