100 Words- May 23, 2015

One of the more frustrating things bout being seventy-two is that I am not anywhere near as articulate in free floating discussion as I once prided myself as being. Everything I want to say, disappears even as I’m saying it. I draw blanks, not only on names, but ,sometimes, even on the simplest word I want to use. It is getting to the point where I avoid any public, vocal,discourse that involves anything more than a yes or no answer, because of fear of looking the fool.

Perhaps I should be more patient with myself. And pigs should always fly!


About elrondsilvermaul

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.

    Oh, yeah. Don’t you just love it? And what is that word? Why did I come into this room. What did I do with my keys? Which coat pocket? Just think, new places, new people, what an adventure. 😀 Heh!


  2. Ah, Penny- I am enjoying it less and less- and I haven’t even touched on the physical annoyances.

    You are not alone my friend. I work in an office of 50 something’s…half of our conversations end up in dead-ends cause we can’t remember the details. Eh… Details are overrated…


  4. Thanks for the support, John, but I don’t want to end my days grunting instead of speaking.
