Aging? Or living eternal life now?

I’d had a wonderful day with friends, horseback riding on trails deep in a national forest. The scenery was magnificent, and joy permeated our conversations. As we sat around the campfire in the evening, I felt satisfied about the day. Then the talk turned to aging. As the conversation progressed, I found myself feeling increasingly frustrated and disappointed. Without thinking, I blurted out that I felt as if I were sitting in a nursing home listening to everyone complain. 

Not long after this experience, I became acutely aware of aging as a frequent topic of conversation. I also began to think of myself as aging in ways I hadn’t before.
