Are you one of my generation: a baby boomer? Looking for inspiration: a sign that time need not wither thee?
I offer my experience of the last twenty four hours.
Last night, I danced for hours to the stirring strains of a great Sixties band, doing my best to keep up with those young enough to be my kids!
After a mere four and a half hours sleep, our alarm bell rang, so at just past first light I’m up and getting breakfast for Ron and my pets.
Eight a.m. sees me queuing to register for four swimming events. By eleven-thirty it’s all over, and I’ve recorded one of my fastest times ever in the one kilometre race, and a rather slick time for the hundred.
Am I proud of myself? Wouldn’t you be?
