Tom, that’s an interesting insight. And I wonder how many of us at that same age in any generation feels the same, at least in a society that reveres youth above all other worthwhile values. I dunno but I would bet that there is a lot of similarity. You and I probably know a great many folks in their forties and fifties who fit this profile as well- I run into plenty at my high school reunions and I’m heading for my 50th soon. I don’t have the answer, but there are so many who seem lost at any age any more. And yes. The Universe could care less.
