Daily Dozen – Wise, Wonderful and White-Haired – It’s the Way of the World

I’m hitting middle age (or maybe it’s hitting me?) and so I’ve been thinking about age lately. One can go at any point I suppose so I’m thankful for where I am and what I have; but the other day I realized I’m closer to 60 than 30 and it was a little sobering. As is often the case, I took solace in the example of others. I thought of the many older men I know who or have met who are inspiring or interesting or just a pleasure to be around. Instead of wallowing in maudlin emotion I put together a set of older men to share with everyone.

Now lest anyone pictured here take exception, notice I didn’t refer to you as *old* men, but *older*, since everyone one here is older than me.
