An observation about the beach

Sunset at Laguna Beach

At the beach, there are young men and women, mostly teens and those in their early 20s.

There is also a fairly broad representative of folks in their 50s and 60s.

There are hardly any in their 30s and 40s.  Virtually none.

I think when you’re young, you’re happy to gallivant with few clothes and a nice tan.

In your child-raising years, you start feeling self-conscious about your body’s imperfections:  Lumpier, whiter skin among the offenders.

But, by your 50s, you think, “Chuck it.  Who cares?” and you can go out in public in a swimming suit again.
