He says as we age we become the person we were always meant to be. I heard a Dr. speaking once and he said something to the effect that the majority of seniors are stagnant in themselves..unchangeable..but in a good way. They know who they are.
I know of a gentleman in a nursing home who “came out” at 90 years of age. The staff and residents had a big party for him. To me that exemplifies Bowie’s words.
It’s a great time to be alive and over 55.
