Transcript Middle-Age Facing forty has brought out an almost frantic restlessness in me. I stand in the center of time and look back at the young dreams I had at 18 and realize that little of what I dreamed then has been accomplished. Time is slipping by and there is so much I have not done, places I have not been, beauty I have not seen, truths I have not yet discovered. Lines are deepening in my face, the chin line is beginning to sag, wrinkles mar my throat. Age is laying her heavy hand on me, and I don't like it a bit. Suddenly I want to change things, to turn my life around. I am frightened of growing old. I think to myself: "But I feel young inside. My thoughts and feelings are still young." Then I pause to reflect. Are they really? Haven't I changed on the inside as well as on the outside? And I have to admit that I have. All those bewildering emotions that used to storm inside of me are now under control. The awkwardness that once made me so ill at ease has been replaced by poise. My lack of confidence has been bolstered by experience. I am no longer shattered by minor disappointments, having learned how to take them in stride. Once I thought the world would come to an end if the one I loved didn't love me. I know better now. Once I thought I must be in love every minute of every day or life wasn't worth living. Now even the thought of such continual passion wears me out. Being young is a beautiful time of life, when all the world's awakening and waiting to be conquered. But middle age has its time and space as well--a calmer, saner place to be perhaps, but not without its beauty too. And it also can be a time of awakening, of change. It is at 40 that new careers are begun; relationships are discarded or replenished; old dreams are taken out of moth balls and given new life. It is that center of time when we stop to take stock of who we are and what we'd like to be. And because we feel the days and years slipping by, it is the time when we grab our courage and run to meet the new, knowing that it's now or never. At 18 we are just learning how to fly, but at 40 we truly spread our wings, - Phyllis Correction: Little Denied Parole Joanne Little, 22, the woman who was cleared of murder charges after she killed her jailer in self-defense, is still in jail. She is serving a previous 7 to 10 year sentence for breaking and entering. The Southern Poverty Law Center fully expected she would be granted parole in December, and this we reported to you last month. BUT--the North Carolina Board of Paroles denied parole for Joanne on December 16, using for an official reason the allegation she had violated a previous parole. While waiting for the next parole review, it is hoped that Joanne will at least be approved for daytime work release. - Guardian/Rous ton Post/S.P.L.C. B*
