Yesterday a young boy asked me

in a voice both innocent and bold

“Can you tell me what it’s like old man…

How does it feel…getting old?”


“A lesson on old age.” I smiled.

I’m afraid I cannot teach it.

for how can I speak of old age


when I have yet to reach it?”

There's a figure of speech I was taught, "Mas Sabe el Diablo por viejo que por Diablo" (Wiser is the devil because of their age than because they're the devil).

There are still so many lessons left to learn. ;)
