Zealous Zenith

Happily this relieves the "burden" of doing the alphabetical process. There is no zenith to speak of yet in my life, nor culmination, peak or anything closely related to it. Which is probably a good thing because if you dont have something to look forward to in life, and you know you have reached the MAX achieveable? Would it be worth getting up each day? I suppose I will still be looking forward to waking up each day even when Im aged and decrepid. There is always more learning, thinking and seeking to be done even if "happy" where your at. And....relearning, rethinking and re-seeking? Life doesn't allow for many to live "happily ever after" and I wonder why that is. Is there an attitude of discontentment that runs thru all of us, even if we dont admit it? Always wanting to know if the grass is greener..the rose smells sweeter...isnt the wine supposed to taste better as it ages..it gets more body, substance? And why doesnt one appriciate that fact in all things. We collect lifelong friends who we appriciate for the mere fact they are familiar and know us.

At the age of a young 43, I suppose I do have 25 to 30 years left of productive living and a few years of setting time, hopefully not in some nursing home, but that could be fun I suppose. Id claim senile and bedhop with all the old pervs. You guys know who you are..so..keep an eye out for me when you also end up there. But in the meantime there is still time to carry on a happily ever after deal. Hell, My first marriage lasted 20 years. Not that I want to get married nor seek that at this time, but it could be achieveable. Could the zenith in life be happily ever after while still attaining fresh, new, looking forward to each day type of thing with a single person matching my zest for familiar yet not habitual life?

It's funny, isn't it, to think of our lives as having a narrative shape--exposition, climax, denoument. But they do, in a way. and doesn't it matter whether your greatest success happens at twenty or at sixty-five? The two lives could encompass the same amounts of good stuff, but a long ascent seems better than a long descent.

Anyway, WB, you got it right. As Yogi Berra said, it ain't over till it's over. And there's no reason to quit moving forward until it is.

Connor, Or maybe we can have many HighPoints in our lives. Mini Zeniths, all with their own exhilarating climbs and hopefully short lived ascents. Life shouldn't be lived like a good book where you race to the end just to see what happens? Lingering,rereading and understanding the base plotline sometimes leaves you with a better idea of who youself, the main character really is. And closing one chapter should always lead to the next, and next..............................totally agreeing with you.
