BOOK OF THE WEEK (LIBRO DE LA SEMANA)

Unless you are Benjamin Button and growing younger, you may want to take a look at a book on aging like the one below.  And it you are young, you will be amazed at how quickly the time passes.

This particular book is very readable and talks about passive and active aging. You do not want to be a passive ager, but probably will be if you don’t exercise, have a lot of interest, involved in lifelong learning and connect with people different than yourself.

The Gift of Years

By Joan Chittister

MOVIE OF THE WEEK (PELÍCULAS DE LA SEMANA)

This was a very suspenseful movie, but it kept my attention.  The acting by Liam Neeson and Vera Farmiga is extraordinary.

Russian Rammstein – Du riechst So Gut

ART OF THE WEEK (ARTE DE LA SEMANA)

The first weekend of July, Bay City, Michigan, USA has several days of fireworks climaxing on Saturday evening.  I’ve been there the last two years and it is marvelous.

  1. This is a point of contention between my husband and myself. I am 64 and he is 71. He has been busy laying on the couch for a half dozen years doing nothing but reading and sleeping, getting up to play some computer games. He does nothing positive for his body so of course he is tired all the time. He won’t even get in the shower. He has had one shower in ten years (( I’m not joking), nor has he washed his hair. He changes clothes maybe once a week. He doesn’t sleep in my bed. I have an active life. I’m a musician and in the middle of writing a book. I’m busy. I want to move. He wants to stay where we are. I don’t know what to do. Any advice? I’m tired of carrying him but he has nowhere else to go so I’m stuck. I care about him – probably more than he does. I see what happens when you stop caring about your life.
