**This is an initial blog of a series I am starting, on Aging and Agility? Healthy Aging? Welcome to the Evening? I don’t have a title yet, but you get the idea. Thoughts and readings I share on the process of living and celebrating and coping with the last third of life. I commence with the Sphinx’s riddle to Oedipus and use that as a framework for this first blog.**
“What walks on 4 legs in the morning, two in the afternoon, and three in the evening?”
The Sphinx to Oedipus
The Beach Boys enormous hit song “Good Vibrations” was part my childhood soundtrack. That is the first time I ever consciously thought about vibrations. Well, maybe making a Bronx Cheer (aka Blowing Raspberries) came first as a toddler! I could feel vibrations: touching the big stereo speakers or standing nearby on the floor, clapping hands, stomping feet on a wood floor, feeling my dad’s voice through my back when he held me on his lap to read “Just So Stories.” These are vibrations I noticed as a small child.
