Old Mess

Age takes the fun out of living. Fun things sometimes involve risk. Age teaches avoidance of risky things. Logically, it follows that age takes the fun things out of life.

The belief systems, political strategies, and the trends of popular culture serve simply to stave off the mind's inevitable realization of its ultimate fate. All the distractions are there to keep thoughts of mortality at bay. Why risk anything, anymore, to further these vain pursuits?
