NPR never too late to learn an instrument

A recent NPR story encourages people to learn a new instrument at any age, which reminds of this old interview I saw.

One of the things that sticks with me through the years is an interview with a 100 year old + woman (perhaps she was the world's oldest). The interviewer asked her if she had any regrets. She said just one. When she was 60 she thought of taking up the violin, but figured she was too old. But now, at 100, she realized she could have been playing for 40 years by now.

Just recording this to remind myself of this.
