There seems to be a magic age to life.
Somewhere between 15 and 30 the human brain reaches its peak performance. For about 5 years, the brain performs at a phenomenal level of creativity and intelligence. Then it is all downhill from there.
Hopefully, it is a pretty gradual slope.
I’m fascinated by young people in general, but those in this magic time amaze me.
I have to admit: I squandered my magic time. Finances were bad. I spent most of that time starving. My friend and I were reminiscing about when I took a job as a preschool teacher so we’d have money, except the school didn’t pay me on time and I wound up bringing home every germ known to humanity.
I didn’t get sick for years after that one horrible year.
People ask me why I am so encouraging to young people.
Because during those days, a few people took the time to encourage me.
