Getting older means that you've figured out what you like, when and where to get it, and discovering that they don't make it anymore or they've gone out of business.

Getting older is not like making a bigger boat. When sailors dream of a larger boat, the part that expands is in the middle - the cabins, the galley, the living space - not the bow and the stern. When you live longer, you tack the extra years onto the end - 70's, 80's, and 90's - and not in the middle, like a boat. How sweet it would be to get older by adding more time in your 30's, 40's, and 50's and not so much at the end.
