Herding Emus at 80 – Who Me?
Last week on Orcas Island, I joined three other people in their mid to late 70’s to herd an Emu back to safety and support. Who would have guessed that we would have the strength, wisdom, and patience to bring this event to a very successful conclusion?! Not me!
Society as a whole writes off our elders as “useless burdens,” but just because we are old doesn’t mean we don’t have what it takes to do, well, just about anything!
It often comes down to brain over brawn, patience over panic, and love over struggle.
I have no doubt that us “old folks” have far more capacity for accomplishing what we set out to do than we give ourselves credit for. And the rewards are greater than we imagine!
