Who Am I?

On January 7, 2013, I turned 78. I'm amazed and grateful that I'm in such good health and spirits, with all my faculties relatively intact.  A few friends have asked me what it feels like to be 78. I think it is best expressed by the last few lines of the poem, Morituri Salutamus, by Longfellow:

          For age is opportunity no less
          Than youth itself, though in another dress,
          And as the evening twilight fades away
          The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.
