growing older

I seem to be able to get better and better at what I do... especially more of the
craftmanship side of what I do. I guess it’s maybe also part of the fact that I
come from Iceland, where sort of the heroes in Iceland are authors - people that
write books - and they write usually their masterpiece when they’re about 60 or
something. So it’s sort of, everything until 60 is a rehearsal.
