Glad to see such a thoughtful comment my friend, and glad to see you here. But, overall I disagree with just about all you said, at least among the many with whom I associate- and we are an older crowd for sure.
We don't dwell on our memories and have no more regrets than anyone else, and regrets sure don't predominate our waking hours. Change, I think we all look forward to change - all the way from birth. And the last sentence - we've all pre-planned for our demise for many years, and the rocker-
yeah, but only after we've exhausted ourselves working in the yard and in the garage (woodworking), baby sitting our grand children and every other little/big thing occupying our life. The "resounding thump" -
yeah - so we can rest before the next round of enjoyment.
Again, thanks for coming in, and commenting so thoughtfully.
