Sometimes I get surprised when I read some comments when I intervene on social networks. I am regularly taxed as “old” because I express a different opinion from the majority. They tell me that I am from another era, that times have changed, that I have to adapt. I am also surprised to hear my granddaughters, for example, talk about someone so old because they are over sixty years old. But we are not older in our 60s or 70s. At that age, you can still afford to dream, make plans (certainly in the shorter term, etc.). Children are sheltered (in principle…) and you can enjoy more and more of your free time, invest more in a passion, in short enjoy life. And what sometimes worries the little ones is that when you are over fifty, your gaze becomes different, you generally become calmer, you try to understand things better, you manage to put things in perspective, all because it benefits from something the “young” will never possess: our life experience, gained over the years. And this is the most important treasure.
