About Me

This is the end of my third year publishing this blog.  Most of the posts were written by me, but I have been blessed to have some wonderful guest writers for some, and they are noted at the beginning of their posting. I am a 78 year old retired physician who in the last 6 years has developed Parkinson’s disease, and I find myself starting to feel the effects of aging and chronic illness. I, like others my age, am trying to make sense of the physical and emotional changes that come with growing older. Rather than trying to avoid or ignore the changes, I chose to be active in exploring them, and it has been an interesting ride. I invite others to join me on the adventure and certainly to add comments where you can.

  4. Hello Al,
    What a great blog!! It took me a week to get to it but it’s incredible. I must admit the one about inside 75 was touching, and really made me think. Sometimes I feel like 35 was yesterday. I don’t know how I could have possibly passed 45 so quickly and now 55 is gone!!! So to hear you say that 65 and 55 were so different … I had better wake up and live in this moment!!!!
    I wanted to wait to read this before writing. It was GREAT to see you at the retirement dinner. I am so glad that you are happy and doing well. You are a role model to many … myself included. I know for sure that I want to make the best of the years between our ages, but it’s nice to look forward and see there is still so much ahead! PLEASE keep writing these. I think they could be helpful to so many people.
    In fact, I have already called Keith and warned him that we are watching the Marigold Hotel movie TONIGHT. It’s been sitting on the counter for months.
    Be well Al, and most of all … be happy! Thanks for sharing this!
    My best regards,
