Youth Has No Age

"Youth has no age." (Pablo Picasso)

Today is my birthday. One of those days every year that you feel connected to while to everyone else, it's just another day. I don't know about you, but lately, it's creeped up on me.

I spent this past Sunday at Jacob Riis Park beach with Dana and a friend. We spent a good deal of time talking about our grandparents, but more specifically, getting older. Uplifting, I know.

I drove home thinking about my Mom-Mom & Pop-Pop. For as long as I can remember, they never acted their age. Despite their bodies growing older, their minds remained sharp and full of wonder. At 92 years old, my Mom-Mom is an avid texter, sending me messages like this one I received today:

Not to mention that she can still hang, even if that means roasting marshmallows until the wee hours of the morning.

Looking ahead to my future, it's this youthful spirit I hope to embody at 92 and beyond.

I'll leave you with this video of Dick Van Dyke doing crunches at age 95. I'll take his youthful mind and body, too.
