… Midlife crisis? It’s a myth. Why life gets better after 50 | Society | The Guardian.

Not long before my 50th birthday I interviewed the composer Lou Harrison. During our conversation, my impending birthday somehow got mentioned, and Lou said, “That’s the best decade of your life.” I was skeptical and asked him why he thought that. “You know what you want to do, you know how to do it, and you still have the energy.” He turned out to be right, including his afterthought that sooner or later you start to fall apart.
