"There was a desire to push the pedal all along those early years, to mature, to become adult, to bring on greater age. Now, you depress the brakes pedal with equal effort, and hope to stem the slide as it were," he added.
Nevertheless, he says he is accepting the years. "I accept the years, the giving up on time, on age. It shall happen to us all. That is the commonality of the process of life. We are blessed, all of us," he posted.
Big B then said he is looking forward to the future. "Let what comes tomorrow lie in store, in oblivion and in frozen stone - better it be like that than melt away its originality to one that cannot be comprehended!! I embrace your being."
