What’s Fun After Fifty

WHAT’S FUN AFTER FIFTY

A new bud on the rosebush
Mozart with your feet up
Playing the same nocturne again, only better
Rereading Tolstoy
Not having to win the tennis match
Or arm wrestle
Avoiding amusement parks
Not being nineteen
Feeling entitled to irony
Enjoying one’s eccentricities
Knowing how
And when
Doing it your way
Satisfactions the young don’t even suspect
