An old friend and I call these our "what the fuck years". We are entering the last act of life and our authenticity beckons as we shed skins of self criticism and concern for what others think. I may have another 30 years or perhaps not and I need to focus my energy on internal harmony above all else because that is what sustains me.I am becoming more minimalist and more centered on what truly matters in life and having lost friends to cancer in recent years has only reminded me of the fragility of our existence.
I believe it was Orson Welles who said that we are born alone, we die alone and everything in between is a distraction. So then let's make that distraction truly worth our while.
