About   1 comment

At age 72, I’m completely confined to bed and dependent on caregivers to take care of almost all physical aspects of my life.  This would be completely devastating if it were not for the fact that most of my favorite activities have always been mental and social and these activities I can largely still carry out.  This blog is about my adaptation, the kinds of lemonade I make with the lemons I’ve been given.  The view from this landscape is very different from that of adult life — that is, the life we lead from somewhere around our mid-20’s until whenever circumstances, usually a health issue, launches us into post-adult life.

Feels like moving to a new country.  There’s much to explore, much I miss of course, but also unprecedented opportunities of a positive sort.  I’m eager to meet the other denizens of this place and share experiences.  I’m also addressing this to my friends and relations as a way of letting you in on my life.  I’d love your comments and invite those of you in post-adult-land to expand on your experiences of this stage of life.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Epitaph: Judith Bloomgardener died on November 11, 2011.  Several of her friends are now in the process of editing her memoir with a goal of eventually publishing the work.  In the meantime, the plan is to post some episodes from the memoir on this blog as they become available.

    ” I look forward to hearing from you!”

    Well sweetie, its been a year since you had ears to hear, , but I’ll yell back!
    “How you doing out there?!”
