On my way to early morning appointment for physical therapy. Doors open, she appears...
Unexpected sighting in my dignified retirement community. "Could I take another photo?"
Halloween party so early? Sauvie Island, she replied with a laugh and a smile. It was the last day of the island's annual haunted corn maize a Portland native explained.
When I returned in the afternoon, another witch in the lobby!
The night before Jeanette Charbon of Eldercare Consultants spoke about "Aging Gracefully." She encouraged a bit more attention to what we eat (7 to 9 servings of fruit/vegetables would be ideal) and the way to relax via mindfulness. Most striking though was the window she opened onto the power of laughter. She herself had a great, infectious laugh. Brought out our own lightness.
Delightful to have less propriety: old people having a good time on Halloween.
