Through out the world young children love playing ‘hide & seek’ . I always wonder how & why kids get excited,when they escape the glance of their parents or friends.
May be the kid wants to explore the world independently,may be for the thrill of being alone,may be for the satisfaction that able, to fool around the friends.
It is an adult version of ‘Peek-a-boo’
The philosophy,what I think is,hiding is a kind of tension where the child is wondering whether he may be found at all and then once he is found by parents or friends…then it results in excitement and thus the combination of tension and excitement bring in thrill and feeling of achievement by both the players.
Wish I get back my childhood !!
Old age is far more than white hair,wrinkles,the feeling that it’s too late,and the game is finished,that the stage belongs to the rising generations.The true evil is not the weakening of the body,but the indifference of the soul. ‘Andre Maurois’
When do you say A person is ‘Old’ ?
Is there any criterion ? What is your definition of old age ?
Any one is happy/unhappy being referred as ‘Senior citizen’ ?Does criteria differs from country to country?
I don’t have ready answers.May be you have an answer.So let me know.My point here is irrespective of the age,why senior people are looked down and not given the respect they deserve?
Also why old people ( I mean who can afford ) are busy dying the hair,undergoing cosmetic surgery etc ? One can always age gracefully ! Daniel Klein ( Travels with Epicurus 2012) advises slowing down,enjoying play and focusing on relationship.
Thanks for joining me!
