My diagnosis with Parkinson's Disease in September 2009 at age 80 gave my life a new focus and challenge. Finding ways to meet this challenge helped make 2010 the best year of my life. I hope this blog will be a place where I can connect with others who also are dealing with aging and its afflictions and attractions so that we can share our "experience, strength and hope."

President Obama Celebrates Tihar in the White House
In the post that appears after this one, I report on the celebration of Tihar or Deepawali at my house. I just learned about this celebration of the festival (called Diwali in India) at the White House.
I liked the celebration at my house better, even though it was somewhat more modest, because it was with loved ones.
But President Obama describes the meaning of the festival better than I did.
