How relative is age? It amazes me how much perspectives of age can change with age. What seemed to be old, is not so old anymore. Ages that seemed far in the distance don't seem as far away as they once seemed. Many say age is just a number, but is it? As our body ages, you may begin to think a little differently about your life and mortality, and in some cases, you may not realize that things can change or will change until you reach the point where they do.
