Random thought related to the lack of conflict and accomplishment in this phase of life:

There is a universal binary at work: open and closed. Some people, situations, philosophies are open. Others are more closed off. Risk leads opportunity, but is counterbalanced by things like security. The constant opening and closing of everything creates states of dynamic tension. Orson Wells observed in The Third Man that war and conflict in Europe had driven the great masters to produce their works of cultural import while hundreds of years of peace in Switzerland had produced only the cuckoo clock.
