As I've aged, I've become kinder to myself,

and less critical of myself. I've become my own friend.

I have seen too many dear friends leave this

world, too soon; before they understood the great freedom that comes

with aging.

Whose business is it, if I choose to read, or

play, on the computer, until 4 AM, or sleep until noon? I will dance

with myself to those wonderful tunes of the 50s, 60s &70s, and if I,

at the same time, wish to weep over a lost love, I will.

I will walk the beach, in a swim suit that is

stretched over a bulging body, and will dive into the waves, with

abandon, if I choose to, despite the pitying glances from the hipster

set. They, too, will get old.

I know I am sometimes forgetful. But there again,

some of life is just as well forgotten. And, I eventually remember

the important things.
