A friend just recently commented that since she has retired she feels a bit invisible when out. People she said don't really look at her nor pay any attention to her. Why is that, because we are getting older? Growing up, our old people were cherished in our neighborhood. Well respected, admired for their knowledge and experiences in life. An honor to be around someone who offered so much in stories and lessons to learn. I have begun to pay more attention to what she said. I told her I was going to make a point of speaking to every grey haired older person that I see and smile. This has made me feel great and I too no longer feel invisible.
