A Weekend Away

Imagine a group of friends, all well into their senior years enjoying themselves in a rare weekend away together.

Not for them the quiet talk around the fireside but instead a joyous celebration of life culminating in their opening the doors onto the deck on a cold winter’s night and all joining in dancing and singing to Cole Porter’s “Let’s Misbehave”.

Every one of us felt invigorated to be in the company of our peers, each of whom has decided that ‘age’ is a frame of mind and there is still time to sing and dance.

Those memories will remain.

This post is in response to the 100 word writing challenge from Velvet Verbosity where we are asked to write 100 words inspired by a single prompt. This week’s word is MISBEHAVE

  4. I like the idea that “age is a frame of mind.” Lovely group you have there, and a post worth saving.


  5. Live while you are alive! You can’t dance when you’re dead …


  6. I remember those lines from Dylan Thomas, “Rage rage against the dying of the light. Do not go quietly into that dark night.” He summed up the attitude of you and your friends on that evening very well, and I’m delighted you had such a lovely and renewing evening 🙂


  7. Lovely. Simply lovely. Age only makes us better, don’t you think?


  8. Oh yes, Beth Ann. Having time to really enjy your time with friends is one of the benefits of being classed as “old”.


  9. Keep dancing, Judith! I embrace being “old!”


  10. It sounds like a lovely–and lively–time was had by all.
