Execupundit.com: Tired. This post by Execupundit got me thinking about aging. I, too, have noticed the tiredness factor. But, recently, I have been focused on the fact that recovery from illness also takes a lot longer. It is cruel irony that, as our days get shorter, our recovery times get longer. A cold, like my current one, lingers for several weeks instead of coming and going like a rainstorm. Surgery creates lasting effects that can last a lifetime. I'm not complaining, just observing. Our pursuits need to become more brain oriented. The brain is where our joy comes from anyway. Wait, what was I talking about?
