I know this feeling all too well. People always think of a young person when such a subject comes up, but our society has no use for us seniors. This is why I submerged myself in my art through photography. It changed those feelings. I honestly can’t say that I feel anymore useful, but it gives me an outlet. It gives me something that I can hold up and declare that it is good and that I made it. I guess nothing much goes beyond that, but I feel proud in what I have accomplished. I can go away and not bother anyone and find my contentment.. but they will have that piece of me to view and it gives them something to feel or relate to. That brings me peace and I’m happy because that piece of me didn’t bother them and they feel good. See? I’m not such a bother.
