Growing Old Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 2

Somehow the skies don't seem so blue

        As they used to be;

Blossoms have a fainter hue,

        Grass less green I see.

There's no twinkle in a star,

        Dawns don't seem so gold . . .

Yet, of course, I know they are:

        Guess I'm growing old.

Somehow sunshine seems less bright,

        Birds less gladly sing;

Moons don't thrill me with delight,

        There's no kick in Spring.

Hills are steeper now and I'm

        Sensitive to cold;

Lines are not so keen to rhyme . . .

        Gosh! I'm growing old.

Yet in spite of failing things

        I've no cause to grieve;

Age with all its ailing brings

        Blessings, I believe:

Kindo' gentles up the mind

        As the hope we hold

That with loving we will find

Friendliness in human kind,

        Grace in growing old.

The artwork for The Roots’ teihternth studio album undun depicts a child completely inverted, mid-air, after springing up from a frayed, dirty and potentially dangerous, mattress. In that fleeting moment he’s flying. For a fraction of a second he rises above his surroundings.^^^It's deeper then cover art.

January 31, 2013 I'm lifitng wigehts and one thing I read that you need to do is take in more calories and more carbs to build and sustain muscle. But then I read somewhere else that to get ripped abs I need to lower my carb and calorie intake. So I cant do both? I already do short intense cardio and eat plenty of protein per pound of bodyweight. Any diet tips for abs? I also take care of fat intake. x x

I don't know if I'm being rude to leave a comment and my own thghouts about the movie here. I just watched it last night and found that not a lot of people are talking about whether they choose to believe in the first version of the story or the second (the evil one). Personally, I feel obliged to believe in the second, much like the japanese investigators, because this movie is just so full of symbolism and metaphors. The tiger represents the hidden nature of pi and the rest of the animals are all crew members on board, including the orangutan being his mom. So the reality is just pi survived, not because of religion, but because of him feeding on the flesh of other human beings, including his mom. The whole point of Ang Lee mentioning religion is actually arguing against it, since cannibalism is forbidden in most of the major religions practiced, yet it keeps pi alive.Just my own point of view. No offense intended

Interesting post, Dan. Here's a little more info. Although whailng is now a big part of the Point Hope culture, it is a relatively recent development. The older settlements up here were highly dependent on walrus and, presumably, caribou. The reason this area has been continuously inhabited for thousands of years is because its unique geography brings together game animals and fish in abundance caribou occasionally come right into the village, for example, and there is a productive salmon river close to the village. The whailng is fascinating still carried out in small boats made of seal skin, and the whales, weighing tens of tons, are pulled up on the ice by muscle and rope with the help of block and tackle gear. Old Tikigaq the abandoned village pictured in some of your photos was inhabited until the mid-1970 s. Tikigaq means finger or crooked finger, and describes a much longer, broader point of land that used to extend into the sea. As erosion has taken away most of this finger, the village has relocated over the years. By the way, a polar bear and her cub passed along the outskirts of town two days ago. And it's damn cold outside as I write this: windchill -50 or so.
