I have never been this old before in my life. It is in many ways an adventure, and the adventure is in the details. For example, I find that I now prefer sunrises to sunsets. This is a more highly informed preference to my way of thinking. The younger version of myself, to tell you the truth, had seen few sunrises. There are undoubtedly deeply seated psychological reasons for this new preference that I chose not to mull over. In certain circumstances and Socrates’s dictum notwithstanding, the unexamined life certainly is worthier of living. Have to be careful not to over-think some things.
