There are many excellent blogs out there that contain the latest research findings, resources, and personal reflections related to aging and mental health. Friends and coworkers have repeatedly suggested that I too start a blog dedicated to these matters. Once in a while, I toyed with the idea before shelving it: I did not believe I could offer anything unique or useful amidst these wonderful sites.
As I am typing this, I still don’t know exactly what to make of this endeavor. I do know that across different continents, cultures, and contexts, I continue to be fascinated by what goes on around me no matter where I am and what I do. Passion and inspiration can come from the middle of anywhere. I think I have found mine. What about you?
