Meet the Munge

In a couple of years I’m going to hit the big four-OH! And I find, now that I’m in my dotage, that I wistfully look back at days past. I’ve got to say, I’ve had a good old run at a good number of things.

I’ve been a cowboy, an actor, an entrepreneur and a surfer, a student and a teacher, a photographer and a door-to-door salesman. I’ve forgotten four languages and travelled the world. I felt the drudge of a dead end office job and I’ve burnt my toes on year-long summer sand.

It’s true, I wasted half of my youth, but the other half I just wasted.

And then I catch myself.

“Young man, you’ve got more half your life ahead of you.  And these are inspiring times.  Look ahead at the future and what do you see? Nothing? Everything? Then go out and build it.

You’ve only got half your life left. So it’s time to pack twice as much in it.

But first it’s time for tea.”
