Forever Young

  
If I can have the face and figure I had at eighteen, why not?

But there is a contingency to it. 

What?

With the above I would like to have the same knowledge I have now. Only and only then I will drink from it.

Then again if it entails living forever, I won’t drink. I would like to remain the same as I am now till death comes.

I remember as a child when I saw my dead mother, my thoughts were of dodging death. Stories abound in every culture of fountain of life. I thought when I grew up I would search the world for it. As if it was an easy thing? Ha!

As a teenager realization struck that roaming the world alone, unprotected wasn’t a choice. The world was a dangerous place, and going alone was a folly. I never ventured anywhere unattended.

I did read the chilling story of a man who searched the world for fountain of life. He wanted to escape death. When he reached it, he was delirious with happiness. He was about to drink when he noticed old people lying about the place, who couldn’t move at all. He found that those were the ones who had drunk from the fountain.

They were living forever, wishing for death to come and death wasn’t coming.

If there were a real Fountain of Youth, would you drink the water?

    1. Hi Nisthur, I won’t like to live forever (if we had a choice ) although the thought of death terrifies me.

      There is a movie “Death Becomes Her” of Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn in which they drink a potion to live forever. It’s hilarious.
