old age

What is it like to get old.

Well, for one thing, it's brand new.

As with anything brand new -- never been tried or experienced before -- old age requires practice.

The difference now is that practice cannot yield success. Success is out of action's equation. Why? Because the student is already old. No need for success. In fact, success would deter or flummox practice.

So what then does this brand new aspect, when practiced, yield?

Why practice at all?

I don't know, but old age seems to require practice.
