The age of reason?

Since January 3, I've not been on skis and I don't plan to return until this coming Monday. Together, I will have stopped skiing for two full weeks and have amazed myself at my patience in not itching too badly to return on my skis.

I couldn't have done this when I was 18 years of age, let alone just two or three winters ago. The temptation was immense though and was measured in feet of new snow everyday.
Instead, I have gradually eased into snow removal, stationary bike and walking with my wife around the neighborhood. I still can't believe I was able to do this! I must have finally reached what wise people call the age of reason!
