424. October 1st….Age is important…..if…you’re cheese……or she’s 25…..

“If you’re not failing every now and again, it’s a sign you’re not doing anything very innovative.” – Woody Allen

when he was in his mid 50’s….my uncle married a woman 25 years younger than he….that was in the late 1970’s and his wide striped ties…polyester suits….and their Corvette “T” Top mentality lasted for a decade or so….they are stilled married….but no longer listen to Donna Summer….and the age gap is reasonable now……and I always found the whole thing very comical….not my uncle nor his wife…

just the idea that an older guy would somehow want to try to reclaim some aspect of youth,…that maybe he forgot about doing when he was 25 years younger……..maybe worse….just didn’t have the balls to be that person then and somehow now…..the cojones….have emerged……and age….wisdom and worldlyness….somehow makes up for the natural occurrence of aging men and increased ear….nose and scrotum……size…..seems a little…..disturbing….

sometimes what we were not….we were not for a series of better than great reasons…..and if now being the Prom King and driving a 1972….Z28…and dating a 26-year-old you can’t keep up with via…..IV meth and Viagra…….has even a fingernail clipping of importance…or desire…..the yellow pages under….”Psychiatrists”….is the first place to begin the search……

there is a real beauty in aging…..and excepting it…..perhaps wisdom and what has swirled around a life makes all of the things never done….unimportant….as now the ability to sift through the unimportant in a nano second is far more desirable than wasting time on unnecessary people…ideas….and endeavors….things hopefully are straight forward….the games and agendas over…exchanged for truths…..and integrety…..working in an effortless place where results benefit those who contact your world….even in the smallest form…….and it all works like juggling 4 balls instead of 2……

but I have to say….yesterday I saw a guy in his mid 50’s with a woman 25 years younger….I could only think……”good luck”….but I wasn’t certain who I was saying it to in my mind or who was going to be needing it…….most….

  1. Robert, very cool image! I like screenprinty images like this one here.

    The scrotum grows a man’s entire life?? I’ve never heard of this! This is something never mentioned to girls I know. Then again, I’ve recently realized my feet seem to be growing.

    The story of your uncle makes me laugh, too, because when I was 19 my mother married a guy five years older than me. They are happily married to this day.

    Wonderful, what you’ve written here on aging. I think the sexiest people are the middle~aged and older who have lived their lives wide awake and they are wise and have learned how to appreciate their bodies for the amazing spaceships they are and also they’ve come to terms with their creative nature. SEXY! Younger people just don’t have that substance, which doesn’t lessen them, of course, it just gives them something to look forward to if they don’t blow their chances to grow into wholeness.

    Great post. A joy to read. Gracias.
