Life is full of cycles. Farmers and gardeners know that sometimes you plant seeds, and sometimes you wait for the harvest. There is a growth cycle, a harvest cycle, and maybe a dormancy cycle. The land is like that. Some people dare to plant very early. Others dare to have a crop in later then others. There is no correct day to plant (even though in cooler parts of Canada we always used the phrase not before May 24th knowing that to plant earlier than that was to risk a late frost). And of course there is the circle of life. If we lead a full life not cut short by an accident or a disease, we know that we will be infants, then toddlers, then children, then teenagers, then adults, then middle agers, then seniors, then elders. Some grow up faster then others. Some due to circumstance might be forced to grow from toddler to adult and skip childhood and teenage years. Some act like adolescents all of their lives and never quite become adults. There is no right way to age. My cycle is different then yours.
