  • I am at the age when I can follow the swans roosting beside and swimming along Lough Erne enjoying their beauty and loyalty to their life long mates.

    I carry my camera with me to capture any moment that I think is beautiful and then share it with my Cowbird friends.

    I have the time to contemplate and dream; just as I did as a child.

    Erickson said: When we reach the age of sixty we can either experience 'Ego Integrity or 'Despair' The important event at this stage is 'Reflection on Life.' 'Older adults need to look back on life and feel a sense of fulfillment. Success at this stage leads to feelings of wisdom, while failure results in regret, bitterness, and despair.'

    I feel that you are indeed a wise man and that means that you can truly celebrate our age.
