Share Experience

Geriatrics can be so delightful. Some of the clients I have the privilege to interview are so engaging, witty and surprising. I spent an hour today with a young lady of 87 years that was so charming I was sad to leave. One of her opening statements was so profound "I grew old too fast and smart too late". We shared thoughts about children, the bible, sad state of affairs of the country and her worry that she will outlive her money and have to accept state assistance. She said she was a writer and had stories she would like to write before she dies. I hope she gets that chance.
