    The chemistry of the brain, changes with age.

    Metabolism slows. The brain uses less oxygen as we age.

    And the sense of time gets altered. Your first ten years...well, you won't remember the first five. That's evolutionary - so that young mammals, as they grow up, forget their mothers and venture out. We don't forget everything and our mothers live most of our lives; but this is a holdover from our armpit-scratching, banana-eating days.

    So. Five to fifteen takes forever. Fifteen to 25, almost as long.

    Twenty-five to 40, moves along at a pretty-fast pace. Forty to 60, is the blink of an eye.

    There's a REASON why writers and preachers and poets, all said "time is precious."

    You don't have much left. Even if you have another 30 years, it won't seem long.

    So. Knowing that, how much of that time do you want to spend insensible from drink?

    Someone once told me "You ain't getting any younger you know". I told him it wasn't getting younger I was concerned with, I was much more interested in continuing to get older!!

    staying young is all mentality.
    increasing ones knowledge in breadth and depth keeps the possibilities countless in numbers.

    I think it has to do with time compression. When you are 20 you have your whole life ahead of you the options are many and a young person does not want to wait for good things to happen, so time slows. With added years options end and there really is only one thing to look "forward" too, and that ain't an option too many want, so time seems to speed up.

    It took forever for our kids to grow up, our grandchildren are growing up much faster.

    It's all a matter of what's between your ears.

    I turn 80 in June. I've got a list of ailments a mile long, including shot ligaments in both knees and being forced to use a rolling walker and/or wheelchair to get around.

    But I don't let that get me down. I do what I can with zest and optimism. I've got at least another decade or so to go and plan on making the best of every year.

    You can do the same.
