Culture: Song "Old man" of Neil Young.
A girl who has ended her relationship, which was at one hand very good, passionate and sexual, but at the other hand lacking a deeper emotional aspect and lacking understanding. The break gives a lot of grief, but it had to be done. They have to learn to accept limitations, their own and of their lover. In the beginning they have a blind love, but sometimes one has to say goodbye when the relationship is not working, even with the best of intentions.
Old people in a wheelchair after a stroke, paralysed and unable to talk. They like to be in contact though, having people around. They like the fact that they do not have to do anything.
Walk away and keep on living.
Ailments from loss or death of loved ones, spouse or lover.
Desire to keep the mind and body active till old age.
Tinman, old rusty.
Desire for fast motion, energetic.
Hiding, dirty things, in relationships.
The natural process of life.
Living life to the fullest in the face of death.
Content with how I lived, going on to a new phase, knowing my limitations but keeping active.
Hanging on to youth.
Surviving with traditional and simple basic lifestyles.
Their work was their life and they loved their life and they loved their work.
Being part of the process of food consumption for the integrity of the animals.
Traditional family life.
Been through war.
Having to move on from a stable relationship that’s not right anymore, losing hope, or its lost, hopeless, over. Not seeing this coming. The pain of separation.
Maybe I was in it for sexual passion instead of shared values and interests. I want to evolve from primal intense attraction to an emotional relationship.
Accepting and loving your partner unconditionally, less drama as we get older.
A pact between partners that when one of us dies the other has to move on and continue to embrace life.
Someone to love me the whole way through.
Disconnected, flat, unidirectional, a statue just watching and listening.
Maintaining activity, stimulating the heart, conserving energy and vitality after slowing down, aging or rusting, after a content full hard working life, or after doing things that are fast and engaging.
