  • I wonder why I need to write about what I think.

    Maybe it is because at 58 and I have time to reflect on my life so far.

    The frantic activity over the past 25 years of getting married, rearing three children to adulthood, producing films and organizing a home has settled down.

    Maybe I write because it is time to take stock in what matters most. Or maybe I write because worry that I will be forgotten.
