When you get older you only want one thing... to be young, said a friend of mine on Facebook. I wondered if it is true. He is thinking of sex, I expect. And thinking about it (ageing I mean, not sex) I decided I like getting older - life is a search for understanding and that begins at 40 and increases a lot after 50.
I suspect life for a man starts at 50. For women life starts much sooner.
"What music is more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?"So said Logan Pearsall Smith. When one envies the young just remember how lacking their conversation is. At least this young men's, even clever ones' - clever women of 24 or even 21 know a huge amount.
