Some people remain youthful and interested in everything and some do not. Some keep the optimism of youth and some do not. Some stay looking young and some do not. There must be genetic and nurturing reasons for this and a whole industry that emanates from the USA on how to stay young. Among which is the sexist ideal of an older man having a young wife.
To lose interest in what is going on throughout the world is to die a little. The largest known living thing is a fungus that has a network of overground connections linking it all together as one complete whole. Humanity is one complete whole. Individuality is not as diverse as we want to believe but within the diversity that does exist, is enough variety to make us think we are all different.
We aren’t. We fit into groupings with consummate ease. Even those fighting to be different live in communities. We are all a part of each other.
