Occasional Observation #1

If I let myself be compared to, or governed by, other people’s pre-packaged norms of what a man of my age should be able to do, I’d be gently rocking on the porch, while reading an old Sears catalogue from the Diefenbaker era. That is, if I were still here at all. The only norms of health, strength, and capacity one should compare oneself to are one’s own. Our own health concerns give us more than enough to think and worry about, without worrying about other people’s.
