But you can definitely call me a creative. I've been a writer and am a musician now and have been/am serious about both. Many but by no means all of my best friends are artists of one sort or another. I like people who dream.
I'm a SERIOUS late-bloomer. Down side to that: I'm 58 years old and while I'm finally making decent bucks, I don't have a realistic retirement plan. Upside: I am seriously healthier and more vigorous than at any time in my life and could literally run circles around my 30-year-old self, plus my career is on an upswing.
Optimistic/at-least-semi-realistic side: I'd say I have more of my best days in front of me than 99% of the 58-year-olds out there. I've got something of a Peter Pan complex and I'm not ready to start talking about vegetables and my aches and pains all day like my parents did before they died. I'm young, you dadgum whippersnappers! Young, I say!
