    For some reason, I want to substitute “or” for “and.” Am I missing something?

    Down a Steep Decline

      I understand the inclination to substitute “or” for “and you will perish”. As I see it, growing old (talking about our physical, not spiritual, body) is the only thing that keeps us alive.

    Yep. We all participate whether we want to or not.

    No one can decline old age. Nice Haiku.

    I am growing old in age–but not in mind or heart–each new day is an invitation to live and learn!

    Not everyone is lucky to experience growing old in a world where uncertainty prevails… We must accept this invitation by staying young at heart..

    Thanks Judy for your :) X4 .. I like this new way of expressing very much…
