    For some reason, I want to substitute “or” for “and.” Am I missing something?

      Mark,
      I understand the inclination to substitute “or” for “and you will perish”. As I see it, growing old (talking about our physical, not spiritual, body) is the only thing that keeps us alive.

    I am growing old in age–but not in mind or heart–each new day is an invitation to live and learn!

    Not everyone is lucky to experience growing old in a world where uncertainty prevails… We must accept this invitation by staying young at heart..

    Thanks Judy for your🙂 X4 .. I like this new way of expressing very much…
