Ageing Is Not For the Faint of Heart

Turning off a light is a multi step process. First we must recognize that the light is on, secondly, realize that the light does not need to be on, thirdly realize that it is my responsibility to turn it off, and fourthly to make the decision to turn if off, fifthly summon the volition to make the effort to turn it off, and finally to turn it off. There may also be a requirement to not get distracted through the process, and to remember where the light switch is and why we walked across the room.

Living with someone who cannot put those steps together is an opportunity to practice love, tolerance, compassion, understanding, and a lot of other generally positive characteristics; also overcome some negative feelings, reactions, and characteristics.
