This morning I was out walking when a driverless Waymo drove past me on the street. There was nobody in the car, front or back. At once it struck me that I may have reached the point in my life when I have far less time ahead of me than behind me and that society is moving full-steam ahead with or without me. I used to think I was on the cutting edge, but now I feel like the cutting edge is just beyond my reach. Or rather, my desirable reach.
