I've been thinking about this all day. My every day views and opinions are carved from my years on this earth but they are vastly colored by how many years I have left and those colors have changed significantly the older I get. Things that used to stress me out a bunch, no longer matter.
BUT, and I haven't gotten this far in the book yet, while I have gained patience and tolerance with age but I have also gained a giant load of 'get off my lawn'. I think that age and experience has not tipped the scales at all, I'm far more patience with some things and far less patient with others.
I honestly do not stress about global warming as much as I would if I were now 25. I do spend way more cycles thinking and wondering and, yes, stressing about the future of eldercare!
I'm not even half way through the book yet which is good because I haven't figured out what I really think yet.
Meanwhile, today's doll. I got all the bits cut our and organized for a couple more. On Sunday, I will need to shut down the shop and move out most everything so my brother will have a place to sleep and put his things. So today I got everything into tubs and bins so that moving it all and then moving it back after will be easy peasy.
