Woke up to this quote, Vikram Seth on how he feels about being 60

“I’m just going to be happy to be buffeted, by whatever comes along, and then seize some things and try to work on them. But, we live for such a ridiculously short time in this life, even those of us who are fortunate to have health and all that sort of stuff…to not add being with people one loves and spending time with them – you know my parents now are eighty – so to spend time with them, and my nieces, and myself and, I hope, with someone who I can make a life with…this is as important to me as literary inspiration or [learning] Welsh or pottery.”

Vikram Seth, author of A Suitable Boy, interviewed on Desert Island Discs
