Half a century is an age that is marked by Wilford Brimley in the movie COCOON at the time the film ‘Cocoon’ reached theaters on June 21, 1985. Cocoon is a 1985 American science-fiction comedy-drama film directed by Ron Howard about a group of elderly people rejuvenated by aliens. Cocoon: The Return is the sequel to the 1985 film Cocoon. Three actors in the original movie are still alive, 36 years later, Linda Harrison, Tahnee Welch, and Steve Guttenberg.
The Twitter ‘brimleyline’ account, Brimley/Cocoon Line, makes note of people who have crossed the line and reached Wilford Brimley’s age when he was 18,530 days old (just over 50 years). Dr. King and Betty White made it over the ‘brimleyline’ and each made a major impact in our world.
Thank you to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for your advocacy of nonviolence.
The big birthdays (Happy 100th) and dates to honor our heroes ( #mlk ) remind us that man yearns for a long life, despite the many challenges in the world.
It takes fortitude and determination to carry on being innovative and creative, even though many of our human functions may be negatively affected by age. It takes courage to be able to accept one’s age.
If an older person ignores his aches and pains and continues with gratitude and belief in a higher power, then old age will be a much more pleasant experience.
Contemporary man without a spiritual practice misses the added benefits. Only the Almighty has the power and capability of granting our wish of the years, but there are things we can do by ourselves to bring this about.
It is up to us to make each year as meaningful and enjoyable as possible.
It is your own duty to live fully.
Live large. Help others. Love with abandon.
Bear your burdens with humility and grace.
No one gets out of this messy, wonderful whirl of joy and chaos undamaged.
Engage with the world, wiser for the heartbreak, steeled from surviving, energized to make a difference.
Unpredictable exit ahead, maybe years away, maybe tomorrow
