With age comes wisdom, responsibility, and down time. You've seen it all-until you stretch worn out sinew up steeper hills and catch your breath at fleeting pedestrian lights on the way back from your daily morning grocery shopping, preparing, hoping for your grandchildren to visit. To remember. You watched this city, its youth grow around you, yet you feel further from it, smaller every day.
