Our Memories Through Music

While compiling my list of memories for the memoir I want to write,  I’ve been on a real reminiscing journey lately.  I’m very much enjoying this trip back in time and, maybe it’s because dementia runs in my family (maternal grandpa and my mom) and I’m realizing that it could also be my destiny, but […]

Purging – It’s Harder for Boomers
