One of the advantages, I guess, of growing older, is that we’ve lived through The Worst That Can Happen and carried on.  It makes us a bit bulletproof.

(Like so many images, the artist’s name has been lost in a sea of reposts.  I believe it was originally in Spanish, and recaptioned somewhere along the way.  If anyone knows the name of the artist, please let me know so I can give credit.)

  5. When I embarked on hitchhiking through 14 countries (Europe and Latin America) after turning 60, people gave me all kinds of reasons not to do it. To every reason, I had the same response: “Too old to give a shit.” It was true, and there’s something liberating in that. I’d just hitchhiked through 3 or 4 states in Mexico when COVID hit, and I’m ready for more!
