We are here to evolve like you stated. Be proud of yourself for doing just that! I was watching your book reviews on TiKTok the other night and I couldn’t help but think, “he’s so smart, I hope he doesn’t think my comments are stupid.” See! - we all struggle (evolve) even in one’s 6th decade of life.
Keep up the good work!
