I’m older than dirt. *shrug* Thing is, I don’t feel that old. Oh, physically I do, but mentally? Yeah…nope. Does that make me “young at heart?” Or am I suffering from “Peter Pan Syndrome?” No clue. I do know that I’m a writer and writers all look at things differently than normal people. “Writer’s Brain” is a real thing and part of that is the ability to understand what the Universe is going on about today. See, writers almost always have this ability:
The ability to stop, reflect, and go “wow,” Silver, is one of the wisest characteristics an old soul can possess.

I’m not “dating” you, Silver, “old soul” is not a chronological reference, but you do wow me.
I’m an old soul. I was born “old” that way, even though I am young at heart. I think most writers are. That’s not to say that other people aren’t, just that writers have a way of stopping, reflecting, and going “wow” when the light-bulb moment hits. It shows in the way we paint pictures with words, in the way we tell stories spun from thin air, in the way we create the worlds in which our characters live. So yeah, I stop and go WOW! a lot. It’s almost as good as stopping to smell the roses.
What’s made you stop, relfect, and go “wow” lately?
I feel old this morning. Man. But this too shall pass and then I’ll be as immature (even sophomoric sometimes) as usual. ;o) Eh, the feeling old stuff is just the mechanics wearing out. The operating system still thinks it’s in its twenties. Which is why sometimes I do stuff and then the next day I’m all like ‘why do I hurt?’ Uh, because you’re not 20 anymore, ya loon.
May we always stay young in our heads.
No reflective, wow moments lately. Every day I wake up is a bit of a wow and I do reflect on that from time to time. Sometimes, though, life gets to the point where I spend so much time focused on existence, I forget to stop and reflect.
I hear you! But we need to find those wow moments–even the tiny ones. It’s what will help keep us moving forward. 🙂
The fact that in 2 weeks I will be 60. Like you, I don’t feel 60 mentally (physically is a whole different kettle of fish). I still think of myself in my early 40’s, late 30’s. Able to do so many things until I do it. LOL.
Amen, sister! I wish the body would revert to the head but yeah…not gonna happen. LOL Happy almost birthday!
