I'm exploring my fifties with some surprise. Nobody mentioned, in their ceaseless prognostications of failing memory and falling hair, that 'growing up' is a fiction. Older, slightly wiser, more skilled perhaps, but grown up?
I write because I grew up a reader. Language is one of the most startling and expressive arts that we humans have inflicted on this earth. Writing helps me to discover what I really think.
