Lefsetz Letter » Getting Old

I still like the TV Show "Girls," but I really loved the essay. I found myself nodding a lot while reading it.

"I just can’t get into “Girls.”
Then I realized, I’m too old. I’m not lost in my twenties, looking for love, a career and stability. I’ve found who I am. I may or may not like me, but I’ve got to accept me. Whereas when you’re young and dumb the world is your oyster, your dream is to conquer it. And then you get old enough to realize it’s not only beyond your grasp, it’s beyond anybody’s grasp, you’re gonna be here, then be gone and be forgotten, so you might as well enjoy the ride."
