    Oh yes.

    I know about wrinkles and poor eyesight.

    I've just looked at "What is your indulgence" thread and indulgence is a thing of the past for me. Everything I do from sleeping in to eating too much and spending all day doing maths is free. What is indulgence to an old, myopic wrinkly? Nothing. Yippee.

    Youth is not wasted on the young. It's a time for introspection until freedom arrives.

    So technically being old = being free?

    But even then you can't do all things you want because of your physical health :sad:

    Don't you believe it.

    I play squash, badminton and do 20 lengths of the pool a week. I have a 3yr old grandson and we have a great time together on the swings and the slides. We walk along fallen tree trunks and low walls - can't wait for him to grow so we can try bigger ones. (When you get old you don't give a monkey's about rules or what others might think of you)

    Monovision contact lenses sort out the eyesight and wrinkles are laughter lines. Being 18/19/20 was fun at the time, no mistake. But freedom? No.

    Ruled by peer pressure and rules of conformity. Perhaps it's different these days but I doubt it.

    Be you, be free,

    One of the most freeing experiences so far was gaining a level of privacy and independence from family: When I left my parents' home to go to university, I was living in a self-contained flat in university halls (with private bathroom, kitchen etc), and when I first shut the door to that little flat behind me knowing that no one would know where I was and what I was doing unless I told them, that was the best feeling in the world... :yep:
