I’m not alone on the journey into elderhood.

Part of me likes to think that I’ve been searching for answers to life since I was at least 30 years old. Truth is that I had no idea what I was seeking. Thankfully now as I am reaching 60, I have connected with a group of like minded individuals that allow me to feel safe knowing that I’m not alone on the journey into elderhood.
