Everybody's Got One
A blog. An opinion. An elimination orifice. A dream. An agenda. A past. A hidden talent. A conceptual filter. A cross. A charism (often the same). A task. A wound. A destiny. A lost love. A blind spot. A bad habit. A secret. A passion. A soul ... okay, maybe not everybody ...

From Ambrose (in the Office of Readings for today):

Old age and infirmity ... also have advantages: old age brings more friendly manners, gives more useful counsels, inspires more readiness to accept death, and helps curb evil passions more easily. The weakness of the body too has as counterpart the sobriety of the mind. Hence the Apostle says: When I am powerless, it is then that I am strong.

In a strange and unexpected way, something to look forward to: aging into strength.
