Welcome to this website. Why ‘on being sixty….’? The obvious reason is that we don’t believe it. Until very recently, to each of us sixty was old. Maybe even ancient. Now, we can do the maths, subtracting one calendar year from another, and we know that logically, and mathematically, we have reached sixty or more. But we still don’t believe it! In our heads we are really just teenagers. Sure, some things may take a little longer, but we can still do them. And do.
So this website is really a celebration. On being sixty. Tell us about the things that being sixty means to you. About the things you do- and maybe about anything you can’t do, and what that also means to you. Share your experience of being sixty. Photos, videos, articles, poems- all welcome. Happy to hear about your reflections, your thoughts and ideas, as well as your activities. 
However by the time you get to sixty, you have developed standards and tastes. You appreciate quality, and despair at mediocrity. So please, well-written pieces and in-focus photographs! If you must be grumpy, then be grumpy with panache. If you have to complain, do it with style and wit.
We look forward to hearing from you. Please no adverts, selling, investment or funeral plans! We reserve the right to edit or reject submissions.
As Mark Twain is reported to have said “rumours of my death are greatly exaggerated”. Long may it stay this way.
