My view of life from the cheap seats… Art Chartier
"Old age is a shipwreck."
That quote is attributed to Charles de Gaulle, John Kennedy, Orson Welles and various others. It would seem that a plethora of famous folks feel that old age and its attendant ills and declines is a misery and a curse.
I am taking care of my 87-year-old mother in the weakness of her slow going home and I have to say I disagree with these famous men.
