If your age is less than 35 you are growing as a human being in experience and understanding of the world around you. At some point beyond 35 one ceases to grow and begins to recede, to age. As I’ve stopped growing and started aging, I think that I, perhaps we, become acutely aware of the rapidity of the passage of time.
I’m acutely aware that when I'm writing about the growing years of my life, the 1980s, which seem like yesterday to me, I’m writing about a lost historical period, a time that’s as remote for my young readers as the 1940s were for me, growing up. And I think that I have become more concerned with describing the texture of experience before it can vanish than I am with shaping the necessities of experience for my own time. Recreating the context from which my world makes sense. Maybe that train has left the station.
A season of gathering with those important to us is rapidly approaching. In the audience will be those who are growing and those beyond that period of their life. I find it invigorating to enter into the discovery process of those growing. Creating that environment free of judgment and rich with anticipation. This gives me, gives us the opportunity to see and be encouraged by the insight and vision of the custodians who follow us, those seekers of truth working out their own understanding.
As you gather with those important to you this season, create the time and space to engage with those growing, and be inspired by their search for truth that will be a guiding light of their life.
Best of success,
