My Personal Concerns On Getting Older

HI’m not so worried about the age factor, when I refer to this topic. What I am talking about is the fact, that with age, we tend to slow down, simplify our habits and delete (pardon the expression) most anything complex from the equation mostly because we are no longer able to tolerate it.  This is what I am worried about.

In the last five plus years, I have found myself getting rid of most of my belongings, while expressing to those who asked, that I was downsizing just for the fun of it while I searched for new inspiration. However, while downsizing, I found myself also not interested in watching television, nor talking with anyone on the phone and I think the worst, is I’ve packed away my iPod. I’ve lost my patience and a bit of tolerance for loud noises and unnecessary conversation.  This revelation kept me up last night, while I came to the conclusion, that I was getting older and requiring nothing but quiet and relaxation. Perhaps it’s because, I’ve done my part in creating chaos and loud noise, in my younger days and now all I want is silence, just so I could think and be at peace within myself.

I’m not sure I like this change…
