Shipwreck



 
Charles De Gaulle once said that old age was a shipwreck. Indeed it is we who are the captains who eventually must go down with our vessel beneath the seas of nothingness. Time robs the eyes of sight, the mind of sharpness, and the bones become brittle. Sooner or later if survival permits, we all begin to take on water. Let the wisdom of the Dao be your lifeboat to the next journey.
