Only a decade ago, I stopped getting outside diamond setting, as an Independent sub-contractor. I’m literally up to my ears writing blog-preambles & editing and along with umpteen photos during my intricate setting steps. To say that my ‘mind & brain’ are working full tilt is an understatement of the century. I’m now 75 yrs 'young’ (plus a few months),
I still look at my setting with using gravers; as this is a real ‘gift’ that I learned about 55 years ago! I start my blog/demo-setting sometimes at 7:00 A.M. (or even earlier)…:>)
I met a fellow last weekend whose father is now 77 yrs. OLD and has early stages of Alzheimer’s, why so young? He quit working at 65 and all he did was watch television each and every darned day! This fellow said to me that I am an inspiration to him and his father…***get out and stretch your mind to do different things or just keep working. ***
Five years ago (May 30, 2013), I was awarded a Guinness World Record, also not bad for a fellow who is also (a happy) Dyslexic.
Moral of this topic, “***never put your tools down and go to sleep!***” Your body needs to be exercising literally non-stop, so does your brain & mind.
I’m now even preparing 15 new essays, 24 hours a day is still not enough hours. But I do stop working on our Saturday, ‘Day of Rest’.
