This book is intended to provide a combination of new ideas and information with many things of which you may have some knowledge. It is a short read. You may notice that it has a positive spin from beginning to end. There is nothing inherently negative about living a long life. There is certainly no requirement for you to agree with all that I say here. Merely take what suits you and serves your personal needs and leave the rest. It may be ideal for a restful afternoon or in-flight reading. Hopefully you will read it with the understanding that the words here are the result of some of what has been learned over the years.
I express my opinion frequently on these pages. I make no apology for that. I only say that I sincerely hope that when you finish this book you have a better understanding about your own personal journey through the later stages of your life, and, that you will have a deeper appreciation for your family and friends who have reached that time. For it should be the happiest and most fulfilling time of your and their lives.
