About the Book

In this anthology the author looks at her long life, past and present, compares then and now, and tries to adjust to a world of technology that didn't exist in her youth. With a sense of humor she copes with "aging gracefully" and accepts life as it is now. She writes about her love of traveling, her adventurous trips, her love of skiing.

The timely fiction is pure imagination. Present day issues such as cancer and alcoholism are dramatized. As is loneliness and love.

All features, fiction and non-fiction, touch your emotion, whether ot laugh or to cry, or to wish you were there.
