In the 3.91% group - sheesh! Well, is it better to be in the younger part of an older bracket or to be in the older part of a younger bracket? I'm 59. Maybe physically, I wouldn't mind being 36 again, but aside from that, I'm happy with where I'm at on the scale. Maturity-wise, I'm probably better than I've ever been as far as accepting myself and enjoying being "me". Emotionally, I'm still a basket case from losing my mom. Professionally, well, I'm finally able to be "boss" - of my unit, anyway. Financially, I've never been more stable. Mentally, I think my sense of humor is naughtier and I have much more fun. Why can't we start out this way instead of acquiring it later?
When I was young, I admired clever people. Now that I am old, I admire kind people. -Abraham Joshua Heschel, theology professor (1907-1972)
