Young At Heart

What are your thoughts on aging? How will you stay young at heart as you get older?

Before I answer the question first I wanted to share this New York Times article on elders views of aging.

The Wisdom of the Aged

For six New Yorkers age 85 and older, whose
lives were followed throughout the year, old
age is a mixture of happiness and sadness,
with less time wasted on anger and worry.

Because the Night

Are you a night owl or are you the early bird? What’s your most productive time of day? When do you do your best work?

Insomnia Kitty
Me, Sylvester & Weezer. My cats my night time companions.

I have chronic insomnia so I guess I’m a Night-owl. For a long time I named myself the Midnight Marauder!  I have no idea whether my insomnia is due to menopause hormonal changes, job related stress or just plain aging. Many of my co-workers and friends who are in their 50s or 60s report needed less sleep or being unable to sleep through the night so maybe sleeplessness is just a by product of getting older.

I think I’m also part Vampire because I always want to sleep during the day and stay up at night!  However thanks to my U.S. Army training I still wake up early which is a good thing. I’m never late for work.

I do my best writing at either dusk or dawn. The period between wake-fullness and sleep provides me the most and best inspiration. As for my photography that is a daytime activity. For safety reasons I usually don’t go walking around the city at night taking photos.  However in places that are well policed with lots of people like 34th Street Penn Station or other major hubs then I will whip out my camera.

Now for the musical interlude.
