  • What is like to be old?

    To wake in the morning and think you're 30 but instead see an old man in the mirror. What's it like to see your face wrinkled, hair greyed, and feel your frail body.

    What's it like to wake up and be 70-- your whole life has passed you by.

    Did you become everything you dreamed of being, did you see everything you'd hoped to see, did you meet the women of your dreams and fall in love. Did you have kids who are now grown, have you stayed close to those you grew up with. What has your life become?

    As you sit on your porch and think about the past do you have fond memories or only regrets.

    If you could take it all back, rewind your life, be a different you-- would you?
