I started this perennial garden in 2002 – the summer after 9/11. Sixteen years later – and this is what it looks like. This is the first time that ALL THE FLOWERS BLOOMED SIMULTANEOUSLY. I call it my Garden Symphony!
Ok – so it is for next April…But I just got booked to do my Aging Discussion next April. Sharing my stories from my book, RAGING AGAINST AGING, poems by Judith Viorst, Dr. Seuss, and citing Nora Ephron, we explore the five major concerns of aging. This is NOT a How-To, because I do NOT know how-to age, we discuss our feelings using humor.
I came to talk and I learned from my audience. There are some fabulous things going on at the Atria in Roslyn Harbor. Thank you, Megan for inviting me. I feel privileged to have met a group of feisty, alert, active, engaged people who are in their nineties – some even very close to 100. They inspired me, as I hope I entertained them. Summer camp for seniors with a lot of activities ranging from exercise- including rowing teams, to talks, to trips, these people are staying relevant! I raise my glass to toast them: To health, to health, to health, to health, to health! (Judith Viorst)
I will be presenting my book discussion on aging – not a how-to – because I DO NOT KNOW how to! Instead, we will explore the five most common concerns about aging and how we feel about them. Using stories from my life and book, RAGING AGAINST AGING, and poems by Judith Viorst ( Too Young to be Seventy, Unexpectedly Eighty), Dr. Seuss (You’re Only Old Once), and Nora Ephron (I Feel Bad about my Neck), we will laugh as we do everything we can to stay relevant!!!!!!! If you have a mom or dad there, please join us!
