Here is my question to all my Google+ friends and colleagues:

What is the best aspect of being over the age of 50?

Can't wait to hear what you have to say.

Four-legged Salesman

Woof, woof... what can I do for you?

Suzuki, a small cigarette shop in Tokyo, has the best salesman ever – a cute Shiba Inu who opens the shop’s window for customers.

“Make each day your masterpiece.” ~John Wooden

Every morning I wake up and remember that there is nothing better to do than put first one leg, then the other, on the ground. The rest is a great adventure. My dad is my inspiration, and he still takes care of children as a developmental pediatrician every day - even though he is now a 13-year survivor of our car accident. Each morning he puts one foot after the other on the ground, no matter how difficult - because he realizes that there is something great he can accomplish today. Watch my #TEDTalk tribute to him here: http://bit.ly/kent-ted

And please spay, neuter, and adopt your #pets. Adorable fellows just like the dog in this picture are waiting for you at your nearest shelter! There is little more beautiful than knowing your new best friend has been saved because of your #adoption. There are far too many dogs and #cats waiting for homes to ever "buy" or breed an animal.

Have a beautiful start to your week, friends! Like the puppy in this image, I hope your legs are running before you hit the water!

Story
Tagline
Writer and researcher who specializes in issues relating to seniors, aging in place, and mobility and disability technology.
Introduction
I am always on the lookout for the latest news when it comes to anything related to health, aging, and mobility.  Whether it is new mobile apps that help seniors monitor their health or universal design innovations that are meant to meet the needs of several generations, I want to hear about it.  I also research shifts in social and cultural attitudes about aging and caring for the elderly.  

If you work in a related field, I would love you to hear from you and share ideas!  Let me know about your work, so I can help spread the word and help others improve their quality of life.
