Here is the thing
about old age…
You are such a bore.
Not so much to others,
if you can ever find new ears
to listen,
but to yourself,
because you have no new
You’re heard them all before
so many times.
Now all that is new
is depressing…
some new symptom
some new medicine
some new obit.
That’s why our stories
sound so outlandish,
We are not trying to deceive.
We just don’t want to bore
If you happen to listen
as we talk…
well, that’s on you.

John Robert McFarland

“In old age, all we ask is to continue to be the authors of our own stories.” Atul Gawande, Being Mortal
