older mann… By John Blase | June 2, 2012 | 6 I am not at peace. I thought it (meaning me) would be different by now, more at ease, but that is not the case. I’m actually o.k. with this because while not at ease, it (again, me) does feel more awake, revved up to all the early-burly-curly-wurly of the blinding light of life itself. I’m liable to fly off the handle over something silly or get lost in a blue mood or cry over the smell of fresh cut grass. Unstable, erratic, unpredictable, and just yesterday crazy are words that have been used to describe my current fetish of looking into the eyes of the sun which leaves it (yes, me) both shaken and stirred. I do realize all this could prevent one from lasting the day, but the rolling stone preacher (guess who?) has decided he’d rather make it through the night. Mama, that’s where the fun is.

Reply thebeautifuldue on June 3, 2012 at 1:21 pm Thank you, Gretchen… Reply Tim Franklin on June 2, 2012 at 4:22 pm I also find myself, while not elderly, older than I ever thought about being. It’s a strange and mystical place. Both shaken and stirred indeed. I always have a sense of anticipation when clicking on your assigned spot on the bookmarks bar. Thanks for always being provocative. I find that this older mann needs regular provoking. Reply thebeautifuldue on June 3, 2012 at 1:22 pm Thanks, Tim…I wholeheartedly agree – it is a strange and mystical place. Reply David Blase on June 3, 2012 at 2:03 pm When I was 40ish I read several books about Mid-Life Crisis. Never did know if that is what I was having! Thought I was! At 72 I don’t feel a Crisis….I do have a “Peace” down deep in the “heart of my soul”. Dad Reply mike graves on June 3, 2012 at 7:35 pm I’ll turn you on, sonny to something strong….
