Change of Direction

People reach a certain age and then other people just write them off.  They say, “She ain’t going nowhere.”  And the truth is that most people talk about things they want to do and then it doesn’t end up happening.  No one expects anyone to actually change course after a certain age.

And I wonder why do we do this?  We reach a certain point and we say this is what I’m going to make and this is what I’m going to do for the rest of my life.

Sometimes I think about what if I’d decided I’d peeked at thirty or thirty-five and then I lived to be eighty?

Depending on the circumstance life is long or life is short but time is precious either way.
