I’m still pondering the ponderable – and the imponderable.
Recently, for reasons I won’t divulge, I’ve been thinking about brains. But so have a lot of Baby Boomers. Our brains are important to us. I remember Woody Allen’s character in 1973’s Sleeper saying, “My Brain. It’s my second favorite organ.” Thanks to the invention of Viagra this is still true.
I take a contrarian view. I think we’re doing pretty well in the thinking department. Our decision-making doesn’t seem to have been affected by the aging process. And what many of us want to do with the rest of our lives sounds rather sane to me.
