    With age comes maturity, up to a certain point, and then some of us start moving back into a slightly more immature era. Retired people with fewer responsibilities can take a what the heck attitude to life, I know I have! (Report) Reply

    'Age'
    what a 3 line Masterpiece!
    Shallow when young
    Experienced and deep with age
    As time, consumes it all.
    A whole treatise on life in 3 brief lines!
    Fantastic!

    I have had several old posts read by different people today.2 hours ago, Bri read this 16 month old poem too. An interesting phenomenon of coincidence. Thank you for reading and bolstering my ego
