Hola Amigxs!

Organisers are really excited to announce the second installment of the Mahico Festival at the home of the Blues Festival, The Green Room, on Saturday, June 8, over the King’s birthday long weekend.
I’m interested to know if there was an exact moment the many Echonetdaly reader/retirees realised that old age was arriving.
For me it was the day twenty years ago (when I was 63) that I hurried down to a farmers’ market to meet friends and suddenly noticed that I wore a slipper on one foot and a shoe on the other.
Nobody commented, sneered, looked perplexed, asked a question or even blinked. But I was surprised.
Is old age often recognised in a moment or does it always just creep up on us?

  1. Age is time and time is a relative concept. Everything that is relative depends on something else, therefore it is nothing in itself, and nothing that is relative is worth a second thought. Old age cannot be recognized as it does not exist in itself, it is just another social convention.
