I used to scamper up and down the La Jolla Trail.
Now I hobble at best and butt slide at worst.
I nearly died 3 times today.
Twice of fright
Nearly once due to the unfair laws of gravity.
Gravity is like old age
It pulls you closer to the ground
You already lie buried in.e
An open grave has but one exit.
But thankfully it’s open all the time.
