I’d like to break precedent. Instead of discussing my own ideas, I’d like to introduce you to a wonderful new friend and resource.
I’ve recently gotten to know Ronni Bennett, who a mutual acquaintance calls the Empress of Aging. Her Time Goes By, http://www.timegoesby.net/ , is the most delightful and informative blog on aging that you will find on the net. She keeps you up to date on news and strategic thinking about aging, health care, and the politics of both. Her blog often takes the form of moving, hilarious, and personal essays, written with a light and deft hand, through links to tv programs, webinars, John Oliver-type humorists, and music to remind us of the nineteen fifties, sixties, and seventies. In a recent conversation, Ronni confessed that she was imprinted by Ed Sullivan and her blog does, in fact, serve as a variety show for our generation—and others. You’ll love it.
