We live in Sarasota, Florida where we are often surrounded by our elders, one of those politically correct terms for old people.
At social gatherings–of which there are many–some of the major topics are knee replacements, physical rehab, and drugs that work.
I’m delighted I still feel young, although whether I am or not is completely subjective. I’m blessed with good health, a loving family, and a passion for writing. Many of my neighbors and friends may be aging, but they are active and involved, with a variety of interests and houses filled with laughter, so they don’t seem old either.
