(From Stonekettle Station)
But you get older.
The horizons get closer and closer as the years go by.
You live long enough, you start to lose people, friends, family. You lose connections. Your eyesight goes and your hearing. You hurt. Goddamn, how you hurt after a while. The world speeds up and you slow down, things change, complexity increases, it gets harder and harder to keep up until you just can’t any more. You become more and more distanced from the world.
