The Old Dock
Like life, the dock was once new, useful, built for a purpose. Time change as well as the purpose or its usefulness. Without a purpose boards age, weather and some collapse. Grass creeps between slats and eventually the dock will fade into the mist as nature reclaims her land.
Purposefulness is so important. Parkinson's and its symptoms questions your purpose for getting out of bed each morning. Your choices are easy, either you decide to move on and find your purpose, or wait for the crematory to call.
