Shadow Dancing...

Our bones may creak

Our skin may sag

But we can leave 

Old age behind

If we dare to step

Beyond the flesh

Onto the dance floor

Of the mind!

  1. I have to feel my infirmities before remembering I'm no longer young. Lovely reminder that we're only old when we give in to age. 😊

    1. Ta, I've said many times, I really look forward to your comments 'cos I know you'll say it as it is and I appreciate that. And I firmly agree with you when you say "we're only old when we give in to age"...I've been in the company of people much younger than myself and watched them practically talk themselves into a care home!
