The water was the perfect temperature in the YMCA pool, the other students in the water balance class were amicable, and the instructor Cindy was lively and motivational on more levels that just physically maximizing the class for us.  I was enthusiastically paddling t...

It was my first appointment with a new doctor to discuss my chronic hip and lower back pain.  Three patients were waiting to be seen, a middle-aged white man, a middle-aged black man with his white wife, and old me, female and alone.  I waited to see how we each would...

Thanksgiving is still one of my favorite holidays, but I have no one to enjoy my good cooking on Thanksgiving Day*, but me.  I will have to develop some age-appropriate ways to celebrate and give thanks for the bounty of life.  For example, I used to bake a mincemeat p...

Ten dips in a chlorinated swimming pool and my hair stopped falling out.  An undercoat may even be growing back.  I have been quite distressed this year by a steady loss of what had once been thick, fine hair.  In my old age of attrition I was losing a brush full of fi...

I commented online that I LOVE this 21st century music, it makes me think deeply and feel far.  Thank you, please give me MORE.
