Theme: Act Your Age
What is your age? Stop a moment, really think about it. Do you play the part assigned by your age and are you happy with it or are you infuriated by assumptions about age-groups – ‘baby-faced’ ‘rebellious teen’, or ‘cynical’ mid-lifer, ‘sprightly’ elder? Can you fruitfully defy your age, and how do you, how does anyone, go about it? Boldly, slyly, fearfully, joyfully? Or are you comfortable being the age you are?
