May I become a peaceful old man

Robert Wenzel shares James Althucher’s observations from when he met 86-year old Thich Nhat Hanh, a buddhist monk and peace activist.

He looked like a child. He smiled like a child. He talked like a little boy. 

Wenzel had a similar experience when he attended an event for Romain de Tirtoff, aka Erte, who was 95 at the time:

Being in his presence resulted in type of experience I had never had before, nor since. There was a peacefulness and angelic aura about him.

May I become a peaceful old man, like these true gentlemen.
