Success Can be Redefined

What is success when you are in your sixties?  Some ideas of success can be left behind--they were worthwhile at an earlier time.  Now success can be redefined, even in small ways: the morning smile from the trolley driver when I step up on that first high step with a little more effort.  I am going to work--part-time--and the sun is up, and the Monongahela River is frozen all but a narrow channel near the edge. The sky looks transparent and I am glad to be out in the cold.
