I have some sewing…

I have some sewing projects I'm hoping to take care of today (mostly mending and such, nothing glamorous), so I started watching Project Runway to keep me company. And oddly, it's making me appreciate being in my 40s. The pressure on that show is so intense, and there are some 20-somethings that are clearly just totally losing it, while the older contestants seem more able to roll with the punches.

And maybe that's part of what it is to be young, to feel things so intensely, to be caught up into the heights and depths. They say our brains don't finish maturing until sometime in the 20s, right, and that's why teens and young adults are at more risk for all kinds of dangers that come with poor decision-making. And maybe that's good for the species, pushing us overall to risky but sometimes rewarding behavior. Would I be as willing now to face the storm of social disapproval that came with writing erotica in my 20s? It got really vicious at times. Hmm....

Middle-of-the-night ramblings from someone who didn't get enough sleep. Don't take it too seriously. :-)
