You realize how little time you have left and decide it is time to share the wealth of knowledge that you have learned and earned the hard way.
You realize that if you don't start sharing the information you have, it could be lost forever.
Why do you think there was so much story time is the tribes and villages of old.
The older you get, the more quiet you become. Life humbles you so deeply as you age. You realize how much you've wasted time on.
Wished many times i had recorded conversations i had with my parents and grandparents - a very adventurous and long life.
And older people can remember the past, better then what happened last week. Listen to what they have to say. Wish I had.
I'm more interested in talking about feelings, things we are grateful for, Hope's for the world and so on. Being kind and loving and helpful.
Real wisdom man gains only in old age, Earlier time was only the wastage.
It all depends on the people you keep company with and or surround yourself. Some people are just naturally quiet.
