Forever Young

A week ago, my great uncle celebrated his 80th birthday. He still looks like 60 and lives almost like a 20-year-old. A rare phenomenon – and he even used to smoke like a chimney! Maybe his constant laughter and cheerfulness is what keeps him so young and healthy.

As for myself – turning 27 in eight days -, just today my age has been estimated as something between 30 and 40 years by some very young kids. I tried to shrug it off with a smile and put the blame on their not-yet-fully-developed discernment skills.

Sometimes I feel very old, and sometimes I feel very young. In the last two years the old-age-feeling dominated. Now it’s just about time for a rejuvenating cure! – Today I feel rather like some strange animal … let’s see how this develops.
