There is a word for it, but it has yet to come to me. It describes the moment you realise that in your everyday existence there are more people who are younger than you than there are people who are older. It is not the moment you realise you are old yourself – that comes when you can’t get on your motorbike – but it is a moment you realise you are not young any more. Then you can start talking about ‘young people’, and decide how to view them. They have a different attitude, see things with different eyes, and approach so much from a different angle. Does their lack of experience make their actions laughable, are their ideas a threat to your existence and relevance, or should their views and notions be relished? Those who belong to the next generation will form the new order – they will give us bed baths and wheel our chairs. The world will belong to them, just as it belonged to all of us at some time or other. They can’t be ignored, and their way forward should be guided and aided by those who have been there before, not inhibited, humiliated or suppressed. What they can offer is new and exciting, and that’s why this week we celebrate the upcoming stars of Magnum.
