Susan’s Playlist Aug 4 – 8, 2014 ~ Act Your Age

act your age red and purpleSo far (since Sunday), 50 is just fine! Oddly, at 50 I am far younger than I ever was when I was, well, younger. It seems that every year, I am a little less anxious, a little more courageous. Over time, I’ve become less attached to other people’s opinions and more willing to wear silly pants. I’m figuring that at this rate, I’ll be downright infantile by the time I’m taking my last breath. Heaven knows what I’ll be wearing.

Here is the music from a week of Act Your Age as well as the Jenny Joseph poem I read and intend to live by. Except for the spitting, not sure I’ll ever get the hang of that.

Dance on. Shine on.

Warning by Jenny Joseph

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we’ve no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I’m tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick flowers in other people’s gardens
And learn to spit.

You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
Or only bread and pickle for a week
And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes.

But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
And pay our rent and not swear in the street
And set a good example for the children.
We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.

But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.
