Second Age



When my dad was in his 80's, he began to write about travel and experiences he'd had as a young man. He said that as he wrote, he'd pace, because he was re-living that part of his life all over again. He saw places and felt how they were. He experienced feelings of love, happiness, fear, he experienced smells and tastes all over again, and he felt sunlight, storms, cold and damp. He was astonished that he could so fully re-experience what he had lived so many years before. His book is written in a warm and personal manner. It evokes a time of simpler living and firm values. He'd toyed with the idea of having his book published but was not in good health and it didn't happen during his lifetime. It became my privilege to do that for him in the years after his death.
