Greetings to anyone unlikely enough to have entered the portal into the land where grey matter is disappearing as grey hair emerges. In this, the year I become 60, and in the spirit of New Year and resolutions I have finally overcome procrastination, breached the wall of complicated, new-fangled, confusing technology and set up a blog.
Getting started has not been without its difficulties and I admit to having succumbed to soliciting help from offspring, which leads me towards the content of this new venture. As one who is making the transition from middle to old[er] age, who has retired and is venturing haltingly into the wondrous and almost impenetrable career of writing I hope to become more disciplined by writing regular snippets.
What will the snippets be about? They will describe the view from this side of life’s mountain-where it descends the slope into the valley of old age. I’m hoping I can keep going even when I’ve forgotten my name, but I promise not to regress to a catalogue of complaints and hypochondria, ‘grumpy old woman’ style. That’s it! See you next time!
