My daily aphorisms. Reflections on life, death, beauty, change, love, happiness, etc., written in a poetic and whimsical style.
Sometimes circumstances, like a death in the family, can temporarily cause someone to lose his sense of wonder.Hopefully, he will recover it.
Absolutely! I've always equated cynicism with old fogeyhood, so your aphorism makes perfect sense to me.
I agree! I also think the day you lose your sense of humor is the day you grow old.:)
At my age, I find plenty of things awesome! Well, then, that just makes me feel so young :)
That is apt, Maty, I guess we tend to turn inwards as we grow older, closing our eyes to the endless wonders of the world.
Spot on. I used to joke that you know you're old when your morning face IS your face. I don't make any more age jokes... :)
Lovely. In my estimation, the best way to keep your sense of wonder is to re-experience the world by guiding a child.
That's right NP. Let's keep our minds young for as long as possible.
Yes!! I've lost sight of mine recently....but I never gave up. Thank you for this xoxo
Some people never lose theirs. I hope to be one of them.
Totally agree! It is the sense of wonder that keep life so interesting to us, thus we can only love life more.
I can vouch for that! -- And, also, incontinence occurs!
Very true NP....experience only ages you. lol
This is very true. One of the fun parts of having a child is getting a chance to be reminded of this in often surprising ways.
Law' -- what larks!
That's my philosophy, too, NP. I hope to never grow old. There is so much to experience!
Great aphorism, Marty! Yes, maintaining a sense of wonder always keeps you young at heart.
Great one NP. Thankfully I feel our world will always be wondrous to me.
