On turning 70

Yesterday, February 23rd, I turned 70.  What have I learned in 70 years? The major theme running through my life and that of others who I talk to who are about the same age or older is that fewer and fewer things are really important.  If a person can say he/she has good health, a warm, loving family and peace of mind then you're way ahead of the game.

Of course there was a time when we were all much younger when things like being accepted, having fashionable clothes (not ever one of my concerns), a nice car, house, etc was important.  To some extent they are still important but they're definitely expendable.

What's important now is that I feel good and life is generally good.  So onto another year.
