Tale Weaver # 222 – The Opportunities of Old Age – May 9th


As we age we are confronted by challenges that make us take stock of who we are.

Our health becomes a problem, we live on drugs prescribed by well meaning doctors, we slow down, we watch those around us suffer from one debilitating disease after another and we learn to live on the pension.

My question this week is to task you in creating a tale about the opportunities/or not old age presents to you.

If you do not consider yourself in the ‘old age’ category of life then you may imagine or write about the second childhood you anticipate you will be living into the future.

As always have fun and please link your resposes of 500 – 600 words using the linking tool below.

    interesting prompt Michael 🙂 thank you –

    as one somewhere “in between” … technically, I’m now a (low end) “senior” – which is mind boggling, since I’ve only turned 50? LOL – “how did I get here?!” I ask myself, but age is irrelevant if one is young at heart. The body may have other ideas, but the spirit must soar …

    and this prompt had me chuckling … reminds me of a book you might enjoy:
    The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen, 83¼ Years Old by Hendrik Groen

    some laugh-out-loud belly aching moments …

    and here is my “inspired by” creative endeavour … less literal, definitely more prosetic/poetry:
