What a stimulating summer this has been, filtering through more than one contrasting view at a time; reading articles, blogs and books – science and technology looking for longevity, while hearing conversations around me in real time prattling on about the road to a comfortable retirement. Have you ever tried listening to music by Shostakovich and Strauss at the same time?
While on a short vacation, the Strauss conversation played on a restaurant patio over cocktails. Couples chatted about their retirement plans for a European river cruise and downsizing into an adult-living condo in a small town away from Toronto. All this knitted into a monolog about ailments, operations and medications. The Shostakovich conversation played as I cruised websites like the Science for Life Extension Foundation & Maria Konovalenco’s blog.
