We Are Alive

Folder: 
Vintage Words

.

At the best of times, we inhale
all we possibly can to prove
the theorem, the supposition,
that we live.
.
During the worst of occurrences
we imagine the best to douse
the awful or try to patch over
the cuts and burns to ease
and condole what lives.
.
Metamorphing daily, we
dutifully exhale to expend
the unnecessary, keep what helps
and heals, declaring before
sleep and when waking:
"We are the living."

Age and living

People age so differently.

Ringo was 75 today and looks great .

I am watching Jane Fonda right now

She is 77. 

Looks so good for being 77.

There is hope Lady A.

Happy Birthday Ringo Starr

I was/am a Beatlemaniac (from the early 60's to now) I concur. Humans age differently ~ Fonda (Klute Acaedmy Award) was fab in Newsroom. Anybody seen Tina lately? :D
