Keeping Your Mind Active

I feel it is important, as you age, to cultivate new interests that keep your mind active.

Which is why I have recently started converting old rotary phones into helmets with attached night-vision goggles.

I am also creating a mosaic of the entire works of Shakespeare using Scrabble tiles.

In the winter, I like to carve boots out of giant blocks of butter. They are great conversation starters. And slippery good fun.

And in the summer, I count and name each blade of grass in my front lawn.

Sometimes I read books too. If I like the first page.

Old bones. Young heart. Focusing on a wide variety of creativity. @markstarlin
