a room with a phew! 6th October 2015

I'm tired.... yes, again........ things are just too complicated, too much stuff, too much to do, too much noise, static, interference........... no wonder I've seen with some elderly people a palpable sense of relief in them about the imminent demise..... it's there, that "phew! finally"....... strange as I know you're thinking that is to say, but it's true...... it's the ultimate in 'turn on, tune in, and drop out'........ they're tired, had enough....... for some, to be told in not so many words "the end is nigh!" lets them off the hook finally, excused them from all the mess and bother we have to filter out every single second of every single day........ stuff, stuff, stuff, claustrophobically clawing and clamouring......... stuff, stuff, stuff......... I like stuff as much as the next person but not when it makes you wonder at the end of the day, "where the hell did it go?"........ some people swear by stuff, and others swear at it...... luckily, apparently, here in the UK we are 'top of the league' for 'end of life care'...... not to take away from all the good carers and care systems but really if we are the best then all that says is that everyone must be really crap.......  and hey, you young'uns out there, you think puberty was rough, try aging!....... of course, it's not all about dying old, and to go before your time (whatever that time is...) is most definitely a downer......... yes I know, I'm tired, and tiring probably, tedious in fact.... who knows where the time goes, eh!..... it's swallowed up in all this stuff.
