    I balance my perception of my physical condition between Zen acceptance and horror at the withering. Boomers probably still think we can cheat the aging process. For my friends, not so much with cosmetics, but with vigorous discipline (exercise, nutrition, meditation). We won't out-maneuver death, for sure. But we may be able to luxuriate in our conscious choices,  determined to create the best possible heartiness until our end.  
    The trick for me is fulfilling every day in this body with awareness, compassion and service. Everything is so impermanent. Even us.

    Stay calm, cool, collected.
