IF YOU ARE 60 hoping to reach 80, take joy in what I have found: People who reach 80-plus in comparatively good health can have a great time.When people hit 80 they seem to get a second lease on life, an upbeat attitude that 65-year-olds feign but don't always have.I think some 60-year-olds are still coping with the fact they are ''seniors'' -- called by non-advocates the ''gray squad'' -- trying to adjust to the tag ''older.'' Although it is finally being recognized that the 65-year-old dividing line distinguishing senior citizens is arbitrary and absurd.

An ancient Greek myth tells us that Zeus, king of the gods, assumed the form of a swan and seduced Leda, wife of the king of Sparta. There appears to be no lesson for us here, except maybe "Watch out for swans." But for centuries, the Greek myths have influenced painters and poets (not to mention psychologists). Veronese, Correggio, Michelangelo and dozens of other artists produced paintings of Leda and the swan. Yeats wrote a poem that vividly describes the seduction and another, called Among Schoolchildren, that ruminates about it. In modern America, the myth has inspired The Swan, a one-act play by Elizabeth Egloff that is the current production at Rep Stage.

At Burley's Bar-B-Cue on Oakland Mills Road in Columbia, customers get a taste of more than what William Burley calls his "anointed meat." They get the remnants of a rural, historic, black community - now a small enclave squeezed by the rows of suburban homes that surround it. Sitting on a hard wooden bench in front of the ramshackle blue building that decades ago was his great aunt Dora Mack Carter's grocery store/gas station, the plain-spoken Burley,...
