From the Publisher's Desk: Find and embrace your ‘joie de vivre’

I e-mailed an old friend recently telling her I planned to be in her neck of the woods this spring and would love to visit her. We’ve known each other nearly 40 years but rarely see each other now that we live so far apart. I looked forward to spending an afternoon together like we did a couple of years ago. We had a lot of laughs and great conversation over a long lunch and I was hoping for more of the same.

The reply I got wasn’t what I expected: “I’d love to see you but I’m afraid you wouldn’t have much fun. The way I’m feeling right now I don’t want to be around people. My health isn’t very good, my car needs work, I’m retiring in April and don’t know how I’ll be able to live on Social Security. I’ve just lost my joie de vivre.
