Philosophy for Old Age – Filozofie pentru varsta senectutii

Do you realise that the only time in our lives when we like to get old is when we’re kids?
Ai bagat de seama ca singura perioada a vietii in care ne dorim sa fim mai in varsta este cea a copilariei?

If you’re less than 10 years old, you’re so excited about ageing that you think in fractions. ‘How old are you?’ ‘I’m four and a half!’ You’re never thirty-six and a half. You’re four and a half, going on five! That’s the key.
Daca ai mai putin de 10 ani, esti atat de emotionat la gandul ca esti in crestere, incat gandesti in fractii. “Cati ai ai?” “Am 4 ani si jumatate!” Niciodata nu vei spune ca ai 36 de ani si jumatate. Ai 4 ani si jumatate si mergi pe 5. Asta e smecheria.

You get into your teens, now they can’t hold you back. You jump to the next number, or even a few ahead. ‘How old are you?’ ‘I’m gonna be 16!’ You could be 13, but hey, you’re gonna be 16!
Intri in perioada adolescentei si nimeni nu te mai poate trage inapoi. Sari direct la numarul superior, sau poate chiar un pic peste. “Cati ani ai?” “Merg pe 16.” Poti sa ai doar 13, nu conteaza, mergi pe 16!

And then the greatest day of your life… You become 21. Even the words sound like a ceremony. YOU BECOME 21… YESSSS!!!
Si cea mai importanta zi a vietii tale. Ziua in care devii major si implinesti 18 ani. Pana si aceste cuvinte suna solemn.

But then you turn 30. Oooohh, what happened there? Makes you sound like bad milk! He TURNED; we had to throw him out. There’s no fun now, you’re Just a sour-dumpling. What’s wrong?  What’s changed? You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you’re PUSHING 40…. Whoa! Put on the brakes, it’s all slipping away. Before you know it, you REACH 50 and your dreams are gone.
Dar apoi ajungi la 30. Vai, ce s-a intamplat? Chestia asta-i la fel de rea ca si laptele stricat. S-a stricat, e trecut, trebuie aruncat. Nu mai e de gluma, esti ca o galusca acrita. Ce nu-i bine? Ce s-a schimbat? Ai implinit 21, ai ajuns la 30, te indrepti spre 40… Aoleu! Pune frana, totul o ia razna! Inainte sa iti dai seama, vei atinge 50 de ani iar visurile tale se vor fi spulberat.

But wait!!! You MAKE it to 60. You didn’t think you would! So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40, REACH 50 and MAKE it to 60. You’ve built up so much speed that you HIT 70!
Dar stai asa!!! Te apropii de 60. Nici nu-ti trecea prin minte ca vei face asta! Asadar, ai implinit 18, ai ajuns la 30, te-ai indreptat spre 40, ai atins 50 si acum te apropii de 60. ai prins atat de mare viteza incat tintesti spre 70.

After that it’s a day-by-day thing; you HIT Tuesday, August 17, 2010! You get into your 80’s and every day is a complete cycle; you HIT lunch; you TURN 4:30 ; you REACH bedtime. And it doesn’t end there. Into the 90s, you start going backwards; ‘I Was JUST 92.’
Dupa aceea, viata ta curge de la o zi la alta; astazi ai ajuns sa traiesti ziua de 17 august 2010. Cand intri in anii 80, fiecare zi devine un ciclu complet; esti concentrat asupra orei de masa, te plimbi la 4:30, atingi ora de culcare.Si lucrurile astea nu se sfarsesc aici. Cand ajungi sa depasesti 90 de ani, incepi sa devii mai lent: “Am implinit abia 92 de ani!”

Then a strange thing happens. If you make it over 100, you become a little kid again. ‘I’m 100 and a half!’
Apoi se intampla un lucru ciudat. Daca treci de 100 de ani, redevii copil. “Am 100 de ani si jumatate!”

May you all make it to a healthy 100 and a half!!

Fie ca voi toti sa ajungeti sanatosi la 100 de ani si jumatate!
