“Live your Adventures!”
I received a message from our regional YMCA that 30SEP-06OCT is ACTIVE AGING WEEK.
Why is this week chosen as ACTIVE AGING WEEK? A trivial pursuit answer is that this week aligns with October 1st – which is our International Day of Older Persons.
I love descriptors “active” and “older”. How about y’all who are WELL PAST FORTY as I am? Those two adjectives certainly beat “sedentary” and “OLD” – yes?
Cherish these brainyquote words from centenarian George Burns:
The Y advises that anyone over 50 years young gets FREE classes and services next week.
[Poor Frosty timing as I won’t be in town to take FREE classes].
I don’t know if this generous commitment by our San Diego Ys (all 18 of ’em) extends to other parts of our fair land…

This active ager appreciated what the Canada-based International Council on Aging does for folks in our “gray” demographic! I applaud the ICAA’s mission to change “society’s perceptions of aging and improving the quality of life for aging Baby Boomers …”.
KaBoomers – go for the gusto – during this special week. And…add an adventure every week thereafter.
BEAT “sedentary” and “old.”
