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)
This charming lady helped me get another booking. I will be presenting RAGING AGAINST AGING at Atria Senior Living in Roslyn Harbor. It will be an interactive discussion about the 5 major concerns we all face as we age. I hope this crowd will Age, Rage, Laugh, Cry, Stretch & Kvetch with me! A shout out thank you to Emily Willens of the Great Neck Atria!
I was raised to believe that all of human intelligence can be found on the shelves of our libraries. I have been told that my book RAGING AGAINST AGING is a mix of wisdom and wit. Anyone of the over 100 readers, please consider donating a copy to YOUR library. And remember, I donate a portion of proceedings to Memorial Sloan Kettering for cancer research for the sake of my children and grandchildren.
My mother would say: “Your father would be so proud.” My husband is proud. My grandson is proud. I am proud. My daughter is proud.
I grew up believing that a book was the ultimate achievement. Mine took a lifetime to write. Mine is about becoming the author of my life.
I was never interested in my larger family. I grew up in a small, insular community, and heard stories, and saw photos but no one put the stories and photos together. No one gave these people life. My mother was a very negative person. So, I turned my back, went to therapy, and spent years trying to untangle the web my mother had created. And now, I am lonely and aging, and my daughter had gotten my grandson interested in DNA and so, long story short, I managed TO FIND a real second cousin I never knew existed! And here we are. It is true you cannot pick your family members. BUT imagine how great it is to find a relative you connect with and actually like! It fills that emptiness and together you bond and fill in gaps and connect dots and share stories with. And MARLA is a pro at this- for real. I am just the lucky recipient! And if Marla and I lived closer we would probably light the Chanukah menorah together! And we will in our hearts!
Feel free to contact email@example.com or call 593-6364 or email or text me. HOPE TO SEE YOU THEN.
10 Days to my Book Talk and 12 until CHANUKAH!
(I can tell because I get the stats). THANK YOU FOR RECOMMENDING MY BOOK! THANK YOU FOR YOUR WONDERFUL COMMENTS AND REVIEWS. AND PLEASE REMEMBER, I DONATE A PORTION TO MEMORIAL SLOAN KETTERING. LET’S DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO FIND THE CURE!
