I have never been a patient man but I seem to be getting increasingly impatient with age. I used to read several novels a month and would finish all but the very worst. These days I give up on a book within the first few pages if it bores or irritates me even slightly. The same is true for films and even my beloved music. I am losing interest in things. There’s so little that seems worth effort and application. I am behaving like one of the irksome ADHD-crazed youths I despise so heartily. Unlike them, I regret it.
