The best period of life

period of life

Old age is the best period of life . The comfport level, physical as well as mental, relationships , equanimity, everything else, surpass the earlier experiences, and I often sing in my mind Browning’s lines:

Grow old along with me!
The best is yet to be,
The last of life, for which the first was made:
Our times are in His hand,
Who saith “A whole I planned,
Youth shows but half, trust God: see all, nor be afraid!”
(Rabbi Ben Ezra by Robert Browning)

This is my perception at 72, what it will be tomorrow I don’t care though I am well equipped and prepared to take everything head on .
