The new mid-life

When I was young – always ten years younger than I am – I thought that old age was twenty years older. Now that I am a supposedly “young-old” person I am still learning the lessons of mid-life. That is why I quote this from Jung.

From the middle of life onward,
only he remains vitally alive
who is ready to die with life.

I think it means live for today and yet accept that death is where we are all destined. And I believe more and more that the good in each of us lives on.
