What if aging didn't happen?…moreLike so many of us, I am intrigued - maybe even a little frightened - by the idea of growing old and (eventually) dying. What if aging didn't happen? What would that world be like? And what would happen to our memory processes in this world where we were forever young, always looking to the future? Writing this book was a cathartic experience!

Great story, but there are a few places where poor translation trips up the reader. Better to read the original Spanish if you can. I read this book right before my own trip to Cuba - definitely gave me some insight into this wonderful society!

Rumi
“The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you
Don't go back to sleep!
You must ask for what you really want.
Don't go back to sleep!
People are going back and forth
across the doorsill where the two worlds touch,
The door is round and open
Don't go back to sleep!”
