Many of us in MAMG are (cough, cough) of a certain age. I hear snippets of conversation from time to time about "keeping our brains active." Puzzles, reading, and yes, gardening are proposed as antidotes to becoming intellectually lazy and accelerating the downhill slide.
I've posted Susan's photography before here. I'm going back to her again, with thanks. I found this essay, and the photography, fascinating.
Please forgive me as I add a personal note. Opening our brains doesn't apply only to seeing things. As we move into a new year at MAMG, I hope that we can practice opening our brains to new ideas. Some fab ones are being tossed about and if you want to join the conversation, just contact a Board member!
