Re: Picard's 'middle' years

^^Yeah, but that sounds more like a function of loneliness than a function of age.

It's not "babbling," but my father seems to be more fond of reminiscing about the past than he used to be. One of the virtues of age is experience, and in the past, the elderly were respected, even revered, as a source of experience, insight, and living history. It's our society's loss that we dismiss that vast font of experience as mere "babbling."
