23 September, 2015 Blog

Barbara Knickerbocker-Beskind, at her 91 years of age, got a job at the prestigious design firm IDEO.
As she explained : “I don’t expect everyone to enjoy working the way I do, but if you don’t have something that identifies you in a positive light -whether you’re the best knitter or someone who can still play the piano beautifully- you lose your identity.”

It is so important to keep on constructing ourselves up until the end.

The biggest fear: memory loss

22 September, 2015 Blog, ~

“Ask anyone over the age of 40 what worries them most about growing older and the answer that comes back is almost always the fear of losing your memory. ” BBC

My biggest fear is memory loss – I guess I am definitely not alone in that one-. Imagine waking up one morning to realize that there are people sleeping in that same house, but you have absolutely no idea who they are. They call you by a name, but you don’t seem to be able to match yourself with it. Now, even worse, imagine you wake up one day and nobody knows who you are. No body thinks of you. Nobody knows your past and regardless of all of your efforts, nobody shares your memories. Do we exist because the others think of us? Or do we think of the others in order to exist?

BBC has published in their website, this very interesting article about ways to fight memory loss. I thought I share it with you, as a proof of my existence -just in case you forget me-
