  Your experience,it's your aslyum. That place you can never depart. Age , pain and wisdom, it's not for the faint of heart. Life is just life, it's not good or bad. Be grateful for the life you've had. Be it spirit, or material, oh so sure one time all of it was bull. We live, We learn? Lets hope we do. One mistake, or was it two? Or three or four? so many more. It seemed we'd never learn and then, Time slowed down, we remembered when. Life was young and feeling full. Nothing then was ever bull. Love was grand, we took our stand, on our feet we knew we'd land. Our Life it's made us who we are. Hopefully we've traveled far. Back to that place, when life was new, only now we have a clue. We understand the reason for, the slowing down, the closing door. We smell the roses on our way, back down that path to yesterday. The age , the wisdom and the pain, they are the only way to gain,appreciation of those things,children, roses, toys and swings. Life is what happened while on our way, back down the path to yesterday.

I like it. My life has been hard at times but my grandchildren have made it all worthwhile.
