  • I was late to work today as I am absolutely spellbound reading your daily experiences. I find that I am totally relating to everything that you are expressing and feeling. I have enjoyed every single minute of it, from the preparation before you arrived to this moment. I admire you so much for doing this. I don’t believe this has ever been done in the U.S. by anyone else. I would love to have a CD of this adventure so that it could be given to everyone going into a new neighborhood and joining a new retirement community. It would be very comforting and give a sense of confidence and emotional stability….however, I am totally intimidated by that awful math test counting backwards by 7s from 100! I can hardly wait to read about your adventures tomorrow. This experience shows your capacity for expressing great sensitivity and showing respect to everyone at every stage of life. This coupled with your genuine couriousity makes for an absolutely mesmerizing read. I have a totally refreshing feeling already now about retirement homes, thanks to your endeavor so far. I love the videos. We are all so fortunate that you are doing this for us. xoxo
