about my aging

January 6, 2019

I am a senior now.
I will be graduating soon.

I am on an extended vacation from non-being.

One of the deep gifts of aging is the release from our dreams.
What can I do but live each day.
I am too old to get a new jobs or start a long-term project.
For what is a dream but a dissatisfaction with the present?

My new comfy chair is aspirin.

Sitting here in my middle class home on a golf course, with a lovely wife, music and drugs,
I have achived total happiness.
I suppose many people would kill for this peace.
