Age by Rix Quinn


Minute Story — Age by Rix Quinn

How old are you? Do you want to be older or younger?        

     There’s a great book by Andrew Postman called What’s in an Age? Who did what when, from age 1 to 100. Did you know that at the age of six, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart performed concerts in Europe?

     Or that Joy Foster became the Jamaican women’s table tennis champion at age eight? (At the age of six, I was still counting my toes, and at age eight happily discovered I had 13.)

     Some people do great things when they’re young. Others perform spectacularly as senior citizens.

     Sophocles wrote the play “Oedipus at Colonus” when he was 90. At age 100, Ichijirou Araya climbed Mount Fuji.

     Most of us are older than six, and younger than 100. So what will we do with this 94 years of middle age?

     We can stay in school, or go back to it. We can learn a new profession, or develop a specialty in our current one.

     Unfortunately, there’s no rewind on life’s video. The only way we can move is forward.

     So if I could pick one single age, it would be the Age of Enlightenment, which begins for everyone each new morning.
