    For what it's worth, I know I'm old at 83, but I do not think or react to
    events any differently than I ever did. Some aches and pains make little
    difference. Seeing a stoop when I look into a mirror sideways isn't what
    I'd like to see, but the world is just as interesting as ever, although a
    lot more discouraging than I had hoped.
