I look at my niece – so full of life.
I look at my father – one of those in the depature lounge*
I look at myself – right in the middle – with my worries, wants, aches and pains.
Such is the cycle of life and there is little we can do about it.
Were it that well-being was like an apple, then I could divvy up mine and hand a quarter to my dad.
