Ageing (July)

The numbers (50,60) mean the same as at 20, only you’re not 20. At parties, on PT, there are as many younger as older people. You are ‘older people’. The young rave up. It’s like America on 4th July, free enthusiasm, but you wouldn’t talk quite their way anymore. Ageing’s in the body, that’s when you’re 60: nice, slow, life is beginning. You listen to Motown, or Mozart, and it’s not old, it’s just more then. And it’s now. Only ever one health scare: that’s a fortune. Own it. You think more of those you loved, and those you love.
