When I'm 64 — Born November 26, 1947 — Sagittarius/ Chinese Year of the Boar.

When I'm Sixty-Four

I am generally optimistic, even when drying my tears: Sagittarius/Chinese Year of the Boar. Some might say PIG, I have no problem with that. Sir Winston Churchill liked pigs:

"I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals."

Churchill was a Sagittarius, so I can relate in my small ways, especially when I read his words, especially his wit:

"I am a man of simple tastes, easily satisfied with the best."

As a wordsmith and storyteller, however, there are times I do get carried away with my eloquence and points of view... but that's because I am loyal. Causes and People.

Such as brilliant Stephen Harper, who I wasn't overly impressed with until I briefly met him, years ago. He likely wouldn't remember me, but he made me consider him more than I did. So many tried to interrupt our conversation during the gathering, but he focused on me, looked me in the eyes, no swivelling of head and darting of eyes to see if there was someone more important than me around, and he answered my questions about crime, youth offenders, and lax laws. He said he would do his best, and with a majority things will improve. Something like that.
