I’ve never been able to write songs so I’m writing this instead.
I’ve been wondering what I would say if someone asked what my blog was about and came up with the following:
- How to stay hip when you are in your 40s, and whether it’s actually a good idea anyway.
- or, if I’m feeling pretentious: The cultural implications of approaching middle age.
- or, if I’m being really honest: What the hell is happening to me?
The problem is, when you’re older than Elvis, you can’t ask yourself ‘what would Elvis do?’. Because he never was 44. You’ve got to work it out for yourself. It’s one of the things this blog will be about. There might be others. I’ll see how it goes.
