I don't want to be anywhere forever. I guess ideally id like a normal kind of a lifespan but stay healthy and one morning wake up dead with no pain. every time I put one of my dogs down or lose a family member it knocks a little part of me away. I don't even want to imagine that even a hundredfold let alone forever.
No. and NO. Was driving my son somewhere, and on the radio was the announcement of the "oldest person in America (that day)", who was like 108 that day. My son says: Oh, it's so great people are living to long these days. When you're 100, I'll only be 75! We'll both still be alive, that's great! Me: No it isn't! I don't wanna live to be 100!! Son: Why not??? Me: You'll see.
I like my mind today and I'm fully aware of how ignorant I was at many earlier ages. I can remember how I thought and what I thought. As for my body, I was at my best at 35 to 40. A lot of that was due to weight training. I still workout today but in limited manner.
29.Old enough to be respected, but not yet middle aged. (Now if I could get my carbon "stack" and find a group of 29 y o "sheathes" , or whatever it is, I'd be set); 29 is also a good age to be for a male in terms of, well, let's just say, libido, and leave it at that.
Great question...Reminds of me of one my favourite "kids" novels, "Tuck Everlasting". I have often asked this question of myself, and for me if I could be 28/29 again...I'd go for it. Most "great" people peak at this time; I certainly did. To still have hope, naiveness without all the worry lines I know possess (LOL!) would be great, I think.
