What do you appreciate best about the age you are right now?
I appreciate that even after many serious injuries over the past five decades, I am mostly able to do with my body what I want to do. If I must, I can lift a heavy box. I can sweep the floor and collect the stuff into the dustpan (though my poor eyes don’t always see all of the dander and dirt). Most of the time I can with some effort unscrew a stubborn lid from a jar, as long as the circumference of the lid isn’t too great (my left hand is stronger than my right hand, but both hands are scaled small). Even more important to me, I can crouch down on my creaky knees so as to be able to take a photo of exquisitely colorful sea-creatures revealed by the low tide.
