While typing, I’m watching my thirteen-month-old grandson waddle around. Now I’m in decent shape, but chasing him, closing “dangerous doors,” and holding and playing with him quickly remind me I’m in my 50’s. But when he does something cute, or flashes me a loving smile, oh how I feel so young!

Feeling Old & Young
By J.E. Lowder
About J.E. Lowder
I've played bass for Shania Twain, had a black rhino charge me while on safari, and I've been in the Oval Office. In high school, I went backstage to interview groups like Bob Seger, Rush and Kansas, sorta like "Almost Famous" but without Kate Hudson! As an author, I draw from all these experiences (and then some) when crafting my stories. The quote that sums me up the best is by G.K. Chesterton: "Nay, the really sane man know that he has a touch of the madman." I'm married, the father of four wonderful children, and a proud grandfather. I currently live near Nashville, TN where I write, bike and am always on the prowl for adventure and stories. View all posts by J.E. Lowder
