I'm an old guy (septuagenarian) that loves the game. DM basic DnD for 2 years then AD&D and 2nd ed. Grayhawk campaign for 16 years. Took a break. Played a Rogue Halfling in Adventure League season 8. Now DM for 5e Waterdeep campaign. Most inspirational book is 'The Glass Bead Game' by Herman Hess, also like 'Forgotten Realms' pulp.
