“Every time those of us in our final a few years allow a memory to happen, we omit to possess a study what is in entrance of us, at the brand new tips and pleasures lets, if firmly within the veil, stumble upon and salvage pleasure from.”
Carolyn (in her seventies when she wrote this e-book) urges us to preserve veil within the here and now as we age, and now not waft into the psychological trap of nostalgia and memories. I wholeheartedly agree. I delight in finding out one thing new- every day- turning now to not an assumption, a perception or a addiction, but against the joy of a new skill, new expertise, new e-book, recipe, strolling path… you salvage the premise.

And on this spirit, Steve and I raided the pantry and baked a pumpkin crumb cake.
