Today I am 64. When I contemplate my age I realize time is running out for writing. I probably have only about 30 good years left in me. I draw this time frame from Mom---Franny Worst, John's mother. She was 94 ten days ago, and except for a little memory loss she's doing great. (And who made the rule you need memory for writing!) I also draw on my love and admiration for Mom and Dad Kraker (John's 2nd inlaws.) They've reached 90 as well and their minds are razor sharp. They are my heroes.

So if all goes as I see my future, I'm about midway through my writing career. Just hope John makes the 30 year journey with me. He has no plans to check out before then.
