If ‘age’ is pinching you as you grow older, here’s an enlightening piece to pinch back with, by my friend, James Radcliffe. Check out his awesome music as well. Bless.
Long past the grim-dark of midnight, in a loud and crowded bar somewhere in the red-brick old town of Edinburgh, I found myself talking with a friend who was well and truly down in her cups due to a recently ‘celebrated’ birthday.
As the conversation unfolded, she repeatedly invited me to commiserate with her on the general unfairness of aging and the perceived dearth of her bright glow youth; to which I replied that, in all honestly, as I have gotten older I have noticed myself becoming markedly happier.
Sitting up suddenly, alert, incredulous, (and swaying not a little) she blurted: ‘How is that even possible?’.
This post is my answer to that question.
