I asked satori; she’s a little younger than us. I asked her if she could see the limitations her mother faces due her age. She said she could.”
“Well yeah, P. Some things are coming. They’re coming whether you realize it or pay attention, or not. It’s like being pregnant. You can get ready for the baby. You can get a crib, you can go to breathing classes, you can do whatever you want to try to prepare and make it easier on yourself but even if you do nothing at all, that baby is still going to come when it’s ready.”
“Getting old is like that too. And seeing your skills degrade when they’re not put to use; and losing ability to do things in general.”

Do you think ahead and try to prepare at all?
