Everyone who comes out has a different experience. Mine was quiet and happened when I was 46. One of my favorite books as a kid was Leo the Late Bloomer, so this shouldn’t have been a big surprise. 🙂
And, in retrospect, it wasn’t a surprise at all. If you’re interested, below is the post I made on FB about it. I’ve since left FB to focus on writing, so these are screencaps of the original post.
(I still haven’t read Eat, Pray, Love, but I’ve read Gilbert’s Big Magic and recommend it for all creative workers and thinkers.)
