I am three years away from being 50 and was told today that this is quite probably half way through an adult life, assuming adulthood begins at 20 and the average lifespan is 80. As my mum died when she was 49 I have always thought I would not live that long, but maybe I am wrong, maybe I should be thinking of looking after myself more. I just don't know. It seems to me that now I have discovered excitement I can't bear to return to normal and safe. Will life be tolerable without tasting those dreams and experiences?
