We are ALL getting NEW Medicare cards with Medicare numbers. NOT OUR SOCIALS! I guess someone at the government read RAGING AGAINST AGING – my book!
BOOK WILL BE AVAILABLE ON AMAZON AND KINDLE IN 4-5 weeks!
I started writing http://www.randomthoughtsfromthe60s.wordpress.com as a way to cope with aging. I had retired and could not wrap my head around the fact that I was old enough to be retired. I still had energy, albeit, less than I once had. I still had interests. I still wanted and needed to feel relevant.
I took each blog and organized by subject matter. I took the subjects and organized them in a logical way, first, second, third, etc.
I then expanded on each subject and wrote chapters.
I wove the chapters into cohesive, interconnected personal essays that turned into a 140-page book. RAGING AGAINST AGING is a few days away from being published.
The entire process of writing this book took three years BUT… There is a story about a famous painter, I forget which one it was. It might have been Picasso because he had chutzpah. Anyway, a potential client, buyer asked him how much time it took him to paint a specific painting, hoping to chisel down the price. But the painter thought and slowly answered: “My whole life.”
My whole adult life is virtually poured into these 140 pages. I hope you kick and scream with me. I hope you laugh and cry with me. I hope you stretch and kvetch with me!
