Becoming less and less

Oblivion by polydaktyl


But now it appeared that like any number of the elderly, he was in the process of becoming less and less and would have to see his aimless days through to the end as no more than what he was - the aimless days and the uncertain nights and the impotently putting up with the physical deterioration and the terminal sadness and the waiting and waiting for nothing.
It was time to worry about oblivion.
Philip Roth, Everyman

Palimpsest will be away for a while due to a terminal illness in the family.
