young at heart ( only)

Post by saw » July 2nd, 2019, 8:36 am

the toughest hill to climb
facing my limitations, had to
learn it was okay that a chore
would take longer than i was used to,
so I learned to be amused
at this impostor that stole my mojo
and left me here to figure it all out
my doc said very matter of fact-ly,
" you need to work smarter, your tasks
are not sprints. stop
beating yourself up, I don't have any pills
to make you young again...
I gasped !
What doc ?
This is it ?
Don't you have any replacement parts
like my Ford Econoline van, I mean
I thought modern medicine was further along
than this. You mean......
I'm old ?
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading

well said= yeah it is a talent to slow down and like it
kind of groovy with the avacado trees that seem to sprout with me
watching plants grow

hard for me to think of myself as a

do I deserve the title? am I worthy?

I'm not an outlier. I just haven't found my distribution yet.
