Path 1 - Extraordinary, Elder, Mentor Life:
We acknowledge you as an "Older-Elder who Mentors." Because of your lived experience and the experiences you look forward to having, you've decided you are willing to share your lived experience as a mentor - whether paid or free.  

Path 2 - Okay Life:
We would call you an "Older-Idler" - you idle along doing what may. While your lived experience expands your life - you'll find it unfulfilling and drab in many ways. Let's be clear it's a path, and many persons walk it happy with their decision.

Decide on Path 1... you have two ways to walk forward.
Like two sides of a coin, select one side, the other side is present.
