Three Hundred and Seventieth Question

How do you picture your life at age 70?

"...when you in your return shall arrive at pier No. 70 you may step aboard your waiting ship with a reconciled spirit, and lay your course toward the sinking sun with a contented heart."

- From Mark Twain's 70th birthday speech

    70, if alive. I hope to be able to still walk, talk, think and move about on my own with little assitance. I hope i am happy and healthy as can be.
    My mom turns 70 in february and she is still one active woman. I admire her.

    Older. My body probably will have failed me in some way, shape or form-- perhaps my wretched knees-- but as long as I have my mental faculties, I'll be content.
    The only other hope I have for that stage of my life is to see my children's children, with their families happy and well-adjusted.

    All of my grandparents have lived to 80 or longer, so my guess is I'll still be around. I hope to God I'm still in decent health and self-sufficient. But 70 doesn't seem that old anymore, considering how many vibrant, active seniors I see these days. I hope I'm like one of them.

    i picture myself still having fun, but with a few more wrinkles (ahem, i mean laugh lines). as long as i am still surrounding by my family and friends, i will be fine.

    my grandmother is 72, my grandfather is nearly 80 and both of them are still kickin' like they are no older than 40. so i think i have a good chance of enjoying life at 70+.

    I definitely see a rocking chair. And hopefully I'll have learned how to knit by then. Am definitely looking forward to good health.
