We age, we get old. Some societies value old age and pay reverence to the aged. Others look down upon it and criticize. To those who criticize, your time is coming. As we do age we realize we can no longer do some of the things we used to do. Those things that came natural to us now seem unnatural. Our vision may fade, our reflexes slow down, our bodies begin to break down. It is natural for a man to slow his pace as he ages. People have fought against the ravages of time for thousands of years, yet no one has won. We can only put on an illusion that we remain young. Yet, old age not need be a curse either. There are many advantages. Through experience, one hopefully becomes wiser; one becomes more secure in themselves and doesn’t look to others for acceptance. One understands the great journey.
