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.
My book keeps selling. The sales are all in the U.S. so far but they are selling!
Hope you enjoy the read!
My book is light enough to read on a plane or at the beach but hits on every concern you have about aging – with humor and self reflection, you don’t have to age alone. AGE WITH ME!
THERE IS a list of 5 MAJOR CONCERNS we all have. We all can figure out what they are but what better way to sensitize or remind staff than through humor?
I am available to broach these tough subjects in an entertaining manner. Just get in touch with me!
This lady clearly loves flowers but her yard is slightly overgrown and there are odd pots strewn here and there. Her house is a little run down and I can relate. Once I got joy from doing the gardening and my daughter even bought me special garden knee pads to help me with my work. But my knees now hurt and I am afraid that if I go down on them, I may never get up. Besides, I can only do a certain amount in the day, and writing and doing art has replaced my love of gardening. I can see letting the house go a little at a time because that is how aging happens, a little at a time. And at this point in my life, I became Cindi Lauper: I JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN!
Nonetheless, I am very fond of this lady and her house and her garden and perhaps I will get a dog!
