Aging happens everyday, unnoticed. Then one day you are 60. You ask everyone you know how this has happened, and no one, least of all you, has an answer. You lift your head up, reassess, reorganize those priorities that have dogged you forever. For the first time, you understand the need for a bucket list. You make one. And because you think you might have something to say, you start a blog.
