I remember a beautiful line from ‘Fried Green Tomatoes’.
‘I am too old to be young and too young to be old. ‘

‘Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.’ Rumi.
It is a saying I love. Its beauty moves me every time I read it.
Because it speaks of a safe place where great conversations occur.

Once we hit midlife, these questions can become all the more critical as we find ourselves either in the space of dissatisfaction or the hallowed ground of contentment. (which ironically, unnerves many of us)
