What to Ignore

A  L  O  H  A !
"Rivers don't drink 
the water they carry. 
Trees don't eat 
the fruit they bear. 

Clouds do not bathe 
in the rain they produce. 
What the great possess 
they share to 
the benefit of others. " 
                           Hindu Proverb

The secret of aging, 
as with all things, 
is to discern 
what to accept, 
what to ignore, 
and what to fight.

Love the wisdom - the old (which is current) and the current (which was true when the proverb was freshly minted). Life doesn't change a great deal.

Nice shot of the fence and beyond!

Oh that sky shot was lovely. - All to often you see the scene behind the fence anymore but I guess as you said we have to pick and choose our battles.
