There’s a movie in my mind

There’s a movie in my mind that’s been there for quite a while. If I were 25 or even 27, I would’ve made it in a heartbeat. But now I’m 35, and I ask, may manonood ba nito? Kikita ba ito? Baka sayang lang pera nila, baka sayang lang oras nila. Babalik ba pera ng producers? Kaya ko ba mapanindigan? Paano kapag pangit? Paano kapag hindi magustuhan?

Much has been said about the wisdom that comes with age. The only source of knowledge is experience, Einstein said. But do we really become wiser when we grow older? Or do we not make as much mistakes because we just become safer and more calculated, afraid to take risks? There’s wisdom in youth too. But we can only look back. We will never be as wise again.
