Those of us fortunate enough to have lived long lives could write volumes of memories. I am amazed to think that my father interned as a physician in New York when horses pulled the ambulances. Now that I’ve joined the “cane gang,” I could, if I had the time and the knowledge, write about the arrival of the Iphone, the Android, or the Kindle. Imagine someone riding in a horse-drawn ambulance experiencing things like Facebook and Google, or trying to deal with climate change and a world that is spinning so fast!
The Sun Shines Bright is my effort to write about my life which spans ninety years. I hope it might encourage others to write about their lives and experiences and to try, with me, to celebrate and share the great privilege of living.
