True

We are not the same person
this year as last;
nor are those we love.
It is a happy chance
if we
changing, continue to love
a changed person.

~William Somerset Maugham~

What makes old age hard
to bear is not the failing
of ones facilities, mental
and physical, but the burden
of one's memories

Yes ~ so true. I think the first one could be said of the farmer and me.

Look for cooler weather soon ~ tonight is really cool enough to need long sleeves.

Unfortunately I disagree with the last quote...both are burdens for me. Hope you survive the rains.

Needed the WSM quote so badly.

I am so glad I visited you today.

I agree that we constantly change but also that at the same time a part of us remains immutable. We often encounter the notion that old people are set in their ways. Sometimes 'weaknesses' of personality become more entrenched as we age. Not in me or you, of course. :)

Hm-mm. Thought provoking, I wish I could write profound words like that.
