What inspiration that you can accumulate so much wisdom by living life and staying present.

I found this book to be a refreshing, comforting read; it gives great advice about life from those who has already lived it. The questions asked to this group range widely, as do the answers. Some of the seniors give long, thoughtful responses, while others give an honest, humourous one-liner that really sums things up! Overall, I was happily surprised at how open-minded the answers were.
