Now at the cusp
Most writers write the bulk of their work in their younger or middle years. This is before age and the awareness of death have to be faced. Age and death change everything and challenge all previous conclusions. Their writing is less complete because of this.
The difficulty, alluded to before, is that just at the point one becomes aware of age and death, the need to write begins to become less.
I find myself now at this cusp. It is important I write with the added perspective of age and death and overcome the lethargy that settles in.
