Ok, as they say, hear me out here. You know the way in your 20s, life is full of options and you’re not sure which way you’re going and what the impact will be on the rest of your life. Then you get into your 30s and 40s and it’s head down career, children, mortgage. I am speaking in generalisations here but I think it is broadly true for my generation.
By the end of this year (barring disaster in the Leaving Cert) all my children will be in college. I’m no longer worrying about elderly parents (because they’re dead, I’m not saying it’s all fun and games). I’ve taken time out of work which I know isn’t possible for everyone. But somehow for me and many of my friends (who knew all my friends were about the same age? Not me) all the cards are thrown up in the air again. I am finding it intriguing and rather exciting. Is it just me?
