No day is ever wasted that can be lived consciously and to the full. 2 a.m. The hour of the wolf. You wake up filled with regrets, and haunted by dashed dreams, wondering what went wrong. For Paul Lipton, a successful lawyer in his sixties, his mind’s howling in the darkness reminded him that time was slipping away. Perhaps partly because both his parents had died when they were young, and because he had already experienced his own serious health crisis, he wanted to be sure to live each day to the fullest. He decided he would start viewing each day afresh and in the now as a do-over, each night dying and each morning being reborn. His philosophy was to say, “I am me today,” and ask, “How do I choose to live in the now?” His solution to these sleepless nights became an adventure, and an experiment in ageless living.

Paul R. Lipton is author of Hour of the Wolf/An Experiment in Ageless Living. He also writes the blog the ageless experiment at theagelessexperiment.com. Paul asks us all to put age aside and live the day. Paul is a graduate of Penn State University with a BA in political science and a JD from Washington University Law School in St Louis. Paul has been a trial attorney for over 40 years. Paul is a frequent speaker on the topics of professionalism, ethics, and living a balanced life in a world that seems out of balance. Paul currently resides in Boulder, Colorado with his wife, Margie.
