It may be considered by many too late in life to become interested in writing. I am 58 years old and believe it is not too late, neither is it ever to late in ones life to pursue something they feel a love doing. Quite the opposite; the older one is the greater the opportunity to enjoy it through the fullness of maturity. \n I write because I love to write. It enriches my life and opens anew interests and ideas discarded during the rush to achieve. The foolish mistakes of youth were not all mistakes, even though at the time that was my perception. And perhaps they were mistakes at the time. That is no reason to discard life's experiences as cull and in so doing deprive myself of precious years past. They will not come again, so each moment is a bit of the treasure that God has given me, and I will embrace all, because I am forgiven. With the freedom of forgiveness nothing need be lost, no shame be held, or felt, nor stored for self flagellation. This has all been washed away and I am free to have my life complete.
