The latest bloomer I've heard about. A few years ago, there was a 70 or 80 year old granny who suddenly took up painting for fun, and apparently she's so good her paintings regularly sell for thousands of dollars.

The lesson here is to take up more things for fun. You get good at them very quickly cause of how much you like to repeat the process.

And you're more patient, more mellow, and more willing to do anything for fun because you're old enough that you no longer care what anyone else thinks. It's a certain freedom. At least, that's the difference between me at 25 vs. 45. 65 or 75 is gonna be legendary.
