I am not aging gracefully.
Aging for me has been an unsettling experience.
Remember the story of the grasshopper and the ants.
Shamefully I admit I am the grasshopper.
I wish I listened more.



I am surrounded by wise women but unfortunately that wisdom does not always sink in!



I worry even in my sleep.


I Wish

I wish I could wish!



I run circles around myself
but I never seem to catch up.



Sometimes the medicine is better than the doctor.



People who don’t know what ADD/ADHD are believe the patient is the problem.
