How old would you be?

Came across this really really interesting question: How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

In other words, if we didn’t have a system of counting the years, and you had only to rely on how you feel and look, what would people say?

Alternatively, maybe if we had 4 seasons in life instead of 80 years, in which season are you now? How do you decide to change to the next season?

I feel rather blessed in the sense that I am young enough to still do (and want to do) a lot of things. Thus it happens that I felt it was the 26th of August, and 26 is the turn-around of 62, and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to turn my life around: From 62, to 26. Yup, I was going to be YOUNG again!

It was such a happy occasion. Everybody was there! We went to Die Sinkhuisie Restaurant in Rietondale, Pretoria. Some people like Harm came from far, others like Elna just rolled down the road. We packed out a whole section of the house, all 30 of us. And we partied! The sound levels were astonishing! And while I didn’t get a picture with everybody standing in a row, I got lots of pictures with everybody represented in one or the other. If you’d like to enjoy the show, mosey over to the gallery.

I’ve decided to turn my age around from 62 to 26. I am living in a fresh new world filled with opportunities, curiosities, excitement, great energy and no limitations. Its actually fresh.
