I often cite Grandma Moses who had worked on farms her whole life, raised children, buried her husband and seen her beloved embroidery become too difficult due to arthritis before turning to painting at the age of 76. After that she enjoyed a career of almost 30 years as an internationally renowned folk artist, with her work selling to collectors and museums. She met the president and one of her pieces hangs in the White House. There was a stamp in her honor.

From this I learn not only that it is never too late, but that we never know what deeply important aspects of our life we will need to give up in order to find our way forward.
