This post of Peter’s has some excellent pictures in it. Towards the end of the post you can see a very good  picture of the Gratitude Bell!

I copied some of the comments to Peter’s post. So, I had actually reblogged the post at the time!

Very well written essay about some of the difficulties in old age. I also like all the pictures you included. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  1. I don’t think it’s your brain that is responsible, but a tireless ego, a strong will to live that dismisses the fact of aging. I can surely see this with my Dad. As we age, the brain does not accept information as rapidly as in our youth, but I find that I’m able to think on a much deeper level as I grow older and have stronger powers of concentration.

  2. Thanks for commenting. You are probably right. My post is more tongue in cheek than anything else. But there seems to be a disconnect of what we want and of what we can achieve. At times, it is frustrating. Generally, I’m happy with my age and with my ability to manage my life.

In 1989 my brother Peter Uwe came  to visit us. He stayed with us for a few weeks. Unfortunately it rained most of the time while he stayed with us at Oak Flats. Only during our one weeks stay with him at Sussex Inlet we had beautiful sunshine. Looking at this blog about Sussex Inlet brings back memories. Here is the link to the blog about Sussex Inlet in April of 1989:

My, my, my, this was nearly thirty years ago!

 


Soon after waking up in the morning Caroline, Troy and Ryan go outside to greet a kangaroo.
