It has been with increasing frequency that lately I have been feeling Mr. Death knocking at my door.
As an alter cocker, I am just like all the other old folks, after all.
And, as I approach the end of my life, as I get closer to death, it becomes increasingly predominant in my mind. Of course it doesn’t help much that I rarely hear from or see family or friends no matter how much I try to encourage regular communications amongst us all. Nor does it help that I feel I could contribute more to the community and be of public service, but apparently the community desires not to have my contributions or service. I don’t make these comments lightly and my better judgment tells me not to make those comments. However, I figure those are exactly the type of comments that older people make but no one seems to heed. Why not state them as a good example of what us aging older folks go through. And to think that I am only 61 years of age as I write this!!! What more can I expect as I continue (hopefully) to age?
