So Much in Love in Sharing

  I never know if what I write will resound with others, I wonder if I have gone too far, or not enough the words spill out without filter that is my impulsive side - I think out loud One word tumbling over the other release letting off steam It helps me and I am glad if it helps you too. Thank you for your comments, for your messages, it sounds like we are all in this together and that feels like a needed hug. XXX                     [Author: French la Vie]

Antwerp

Antwerp was about a 45 minute trip from Brussels. It’s in the Flemish speaking part of Belgium and in fact, I found that many people there didn’t speak French but did speak English. I tried to read about the history of Belgium but it was so complex that I stopped. It seems to me that Belgium should be two countires as their languages are different-one section speaks German too, but no one asked my opinion. I loved Antwerp. It is a really beautiful and interesting city. It handles most of the wor...

"What accounts for the growing number of octogenarians and beyond who are accomplished and still accomplishing?"

Asks Jane Brody in (NYT). The article doesn't really answer the question, not any better than you'd answer it on your own: Maintain your physical and mental well being so you can continue accomplishing, and also get yourself into some line of accomplishment that's intrinsically motivating. Brody names some famous people who are still productive in their field after the age of 80 (but fails to mention Bob Dylan, who's about to turn 80).Here's a little text from the end of the article, about reg...
