Although the second line would normally create a new random value between 20 and 60 on each frame, the preceding posterizeTime(frames per second) method is lowering the frame rate of the resulting expression.
posterizeTime(2);
random(20,60);
If you want something that gradually changes over time, you could set the Opacity value to the middle of your desired value range (i.e halfway between 20-60 is 40) then use this expression. The first number is wiggles per second, the second number is the max amount the value will change.
wiggle(1,20);
