Older Women and Younger Men: an Appreciation

Wellsprings, my new novel, is in part an ode to the joys of older women, demonstrating that age is no barrier to love.

(OLDENBURG, Germany) - Woman sillouhette An older woman can satisfy a younger man in very special ways. Her accumulated wisdom and emotional steadiness are needed qualities for him.

Her personality has fully blossomed, in contrast to the tightly wrapped bud of youth full of inhibitions and uncertainties. In addition, an older woman has developed a seasoned sensuousness, a lush appeal. Fading roses smell the sweetest -- petals open soft and fragrant, exposing inner delicacies, gradually yielding to time and gravity.

Senior Home Residents Often Shortchanged

Are our public policy makers in hibernation? It's past time to wake up!

(SALEM) - Shortchanged There's a major difference between living in a senior retirement home and a nursing center facility. That first category lacks healthcare supervision. In essence, it's like a hotel for the elderly.

In fact, for many seniors, mealtime is their primary social outlet. People form clusters for chitchat to have a sense of constancy.

Aging & Eating in Good Taste

Many retirement homes make extra efforts to serve up yummy treats. For those with disabilities and less energy, mealtime is often an important time to socialize.

(SALEM) - Healthy eating at an older age All of us have eaten countless meals in order to survive to becoming senior citizens. The lure of delicious food has satisfied our taste buds over the years. However, we must adjust to changing times.

Just as our vision often gets dimmer and our capacity for hearing decreases with age, our tongues also get older with wear and tear. It is normal to retreat to the memories of an earlier era. The reality is that we older folks simply do not register taste as we used to. Our taste buds are not quite as sharp.
