Old tulip from 2005

My grand daughter 13 today. My oldest grand son goes to University in September.

The time passes.

Today, looking for old pictures of my grand daughter, I discovered this fading tulip I took in 2005. Already wanting to prove that there is some beauty or, at least interestingness, in old... tulips.

Somehow, in 2005, as I just passed 70, and oh, how young I was then! I felt, even more "old" then today, when I am approaching the end of the golden 77.

Yes, for some hours, I am full of energy, activity, comedy, then, I feel again old, with aching bones.

So what?

I rest. I read. I sleep. The energy comes back, and even more when I am facing an audience. They give me even more energy. And joy, and reason to go on.
