So as I reflect on turning 60 I am reminded that I have aged, but I am still enjoying the same things I enjoyed as a younger man. I walked today listening to music on my Sony headphones connected to a Droid mobile phone that was playing music from an Internet application called Pandora. When I was in my early 30s I had one for the first Sony Discman’s. When I took my lunch break at work I would walk around outside and listen to music. My first CD was by Dire Straits who had just recorded the first full digital recording, Brothers in Arms.
So as I think about what has changed in 30 years I can say that one thing has stayed the same, I love music and I can still walk. I have decided to stop playing basketball and have given up on long distance endurance running to save my knees for the rest of my life. I may appear as just another brick in the wall, but inside I am still shining like a crazy diamond.
