It’s the human contact – stupid!

Mar 27th, 2007

No Comments

Previous generations might ask me why I’m so open to meeting new people. I haven’t moved house in nearly 26 years and I’m really happy about feeling so permanent in so many ways – not that I can ever be an American, I’m English still.
But you just never know who is round the corner to enrich […]

I have reached a very demanding stage of life, especially since I had my children in […]

Mar 2nd, 2007

No Comments

(But not forgetting Smell and Taste)
I had lunch today with my new friend M who has Alzheimer’s. She’s 101 years old and has little else wrong with her except her memory and hearing. She lives in an assisted living facility.
She has wonderful eyesight (doesn’t wear glasses!) and obviously uses her eyes to take an interest in the […]
