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.
