Live & Learn
As a matter of personality and lifestyle, I never do what I’m told. So far, so good. I’m sure I’ll screw it up one of these days. I started flying about 50 years ago — illegally.

Elder Blogging to Give Shape to Our Lives
Back in the olden days when I was growing up, people wrote letters – thoughts laid down on paper with pen and ink – and mailed them to faraway friends and loved ones. Depending on how far away, letters could take days or sometimes weeks to reach their destination and the arrival of a long-awaited postal message was cause for excitement. Letters were read and re-read and saved in pretty boxes, sometimes a collection of them tied with ribbon. When I was a child and a young woman, long distance telephone calls were too expensive except for celebrations and emergencies. Instead, we wrote letters, passing on personal news and commenting on whatever might be affecting our lives, our minds, our choices at that moment. Read More
