My Gosh. Every little thing makes me cry these days. I was at the supermarket today, buying food. An old song came on. I was transported back to my childhood. Emotion! I started to think how this person, this mind, this consciousness could so easily and quickly come to an end. Every single experience I ever had – gone.
I saw a lady, hobbling around on what seemed to be an arthritic knee. I was reminded of the small amount of money I had set aside for when I’d imagined I would buy another home. And how I had thought that money would be much better used to help my Mum with her knees.
Then, last of all, I saw an old man. Just an old man, walking around slowly as they do. But what hardships had he been through in his life, and was this his reward for getting through them – a weathered old body that didn’t work the way it used to? I had to take deep breaths to keep from bursting into tears.
Sorry guys, just feeling super emotional at the moment.
