A bio strives to demonstrate accomplishments and qualifications for the task at hand. In this case I suppose my (gasp) seventy-one years alive are a plus for a blog about issues related to aging. The fact that I have reached the wise old age of seventy-one amazes me. In my head and heart I am, at the most, in my thirties. Forty maybe. Oh and I am also tall and thin, but that is a blog for another day.
Other assets? I have had the opportunity to know some of the best of the best in the fields of geriatrics and of dementia related illnesses; in the 1990’s I penned a weekly Op-Ed column for the Weston Forum, sometimes reflecting on issues of age; and I have written four books, three of which are a trilogy, a love story about a group of youngsters in their late sixties.
And here I am in a favorite family photo with sons, daughters-in-heart, five grandchildren, and husband Bob!
