Angry young men, angry middle aged men, angry old men - I know them all and their anger always seems so pointless to me. Harsh words and hurting each other for want of a little patience and understanding - I can't understand it. Of course I get angry too, but mine is so easily dissipated and makes me so sad that I rail against it anyway. My dad is not angry any more. He is old and wise and calm and patient and such a sweetheart that I am sure ladies still fall in love with him even at 81.
