Aging. At the foundation of our biological world we find one of our most elemental processes: senescence. Things of this world are born to live and live to age, to go from flowers to dried fruits and to transform in the ever cyclical nature of death and life. But beyond the biological aspect, with human aging often comes wisdom, and sometimes bitterness.  However, one thing is for sure: there is so much one can learn from her environment by listening to an older person reminisce. So in an age of technology and speed, let us pause for an instant and listen to the generations that came before us.

Aging (II). The older I grow, the greater my sense of respect for elders strengthens. I cannot help but admire the people who have gone about this world before me, facing its challenges and successes. Living is already complex, but living with the tangible proximity of an end must be even more intricate.
