God's "harvesting" of the boomer generation has begun in earnest.
It has not spared my friends and relations. It even has a name -- "Boomerdammerung." Some openly welcome it. There is a new day dawning, cleansed of all of our baggage and of course the better for it.
To whom can I turn as a role model, as old as or older than I, yet still focused with purpose if not enthusiasm on our shrinking future?
Jacques Vallee, Robert Duvall, Clint Eastwood and certain Supreme Court justices. Tony Bennett before his mind began to disintegrate. Lionel Shriver.
There's more. Wait (if you have time) and they will come to me ...
