ADVICE FOR 20-YEAR-OLDS

If you are as 20 years of age as I once was and may for example one day be an elder American male traveler of widely mixed ancestrage who has achieved 66 years of age in a foreign country where you are inaccurately rumored to be a reclusive hermit, how is all this dispelled? It is dispelled in the far best way by the visit of a granddaughter named Kaya, soon to be 6 years old, of whose birth you have been a part, who visits you now, rocketing from the car with a smile even wider than you hoped for, arms open, anticipating an embrace that you are after all this life worthy of, all you now 20-year-old travelers. Look forward with all that you have, for all that will one day look forward to you.

My grandchildren are my life's greatest joy. I never would have guessed that this would be the case way back when.
