Indy 106 - letters

God,

As a child, I was always taught “to mind my own business” and keep my nose out of the business of others.  And, I imagined stories, which were not mine ….

As a young man, I was reminded I “had enough things to worry about myself” and did not need to be concerned with others.  And, I wrote the stories of others. who were not me ….

As a grown man, I worried about “who had what and who was doing what” and forgot to think about me.  And, I critiqued the stories, which others wrote for themselves ….

As an old man, I have learned “no one else’s life matters” and I need examine only my own.  And, I am authoring the conclusion of my own story ….

 

Thank you for listening,

A Not Dying (But Growing Older) Man
