Dear Loong -

It's a joke smile.

The joke is that those who crave closure will be quite upset because the sentence never finishes and lists the second type of people, who don't crave closure.

Actually there perhaps is a third type, they are not making sense out of the incomplete data set, nor do they *need* closure. They are just okay with leaving things open ended. They don’t mind living with ambiguity.

*I* am the type who needs closure, I need meaning, I need things to make sense which is why getting older is such a wonderful thing for me.

Erica Jong once wrote that life is best understood backwards. Now that I have 20 years experience as an adult, I can look back and say “Oh, that’s why I did such and such…or oh that’s why that happened..NOW I understand…oh that’s how life works etc…if you do this, that usually happens. Ohhhhh…I get it….“

Even if it was bone headed stuff I did or “bad” things that happened, at least I understand them now…and I can finally have some closure in many areas of my life. I have answers to questions that plagued me for two decades.

But I had to live long enough to get to this point.
