So, Here I Am

So, here I am. I've arrived safely at maturity. Sorry I was delayed - it's been quite a journey! The weather was sometimes very rough, and steering through those storm-ravaged lanes was really rather tough. So, here, I am. What do I have to show for this long and arduous odyssey? What do I really know? What lessons learned? What collection of learn`ed luggage is nestling in the trunk of my vicissitude? So, here I am, a bit battered and travel-weary: jet-lagged by hours of delays, and wearied by travelling in so many endless circles; orbiting in many a revolving door in search of an exit; blinded by blind alleys and one-way streets. But, here I am, in need of time to just be me. An end to role playing, a recess from responsibility. A time to hand over the reigns of obligation and traverse new frontiers by ageing 'gracefully', as, here I am, safely landed in maturity.
