I just need to slow down a bit,
Now and then I need to sit.
For heavy physical work my body isn’t fit,
Older I am, my protocols aren’t strict.
At every corner of the collage there is an embedded image which talks about what it is being old. Being old means that the sand glass is going to complete in a little while and our continuation is soon going to be just reminiscence. Being old is completing the various phases of our life cycle productively and being a fortune of familiarity. Being old is growing from a sapling to a fully fledged tree.
The center image, the two chairs are the metaphors of how actually being old feels and being old looks. As the years pass we gain from each crook of life. Be it friends, family, foe, nature or any other event allied to us, life teaches us one thing or the other. Being old is the expression that,
“Look, I am now enriched with so many potentials. I know to tackle and handle everything that is encountered. The long journey has given me the unlimited prospective. But look at me! I don’t seem the way I am. The time spent in gathering the wisdom has drained me from outside. Physically, mentally, biologically and socially.”
But it is significant that we always take the old age phase positively and be proud of the life we have spent. That is what the collage in totality is. It’s just like the beach with a never ending view.
