One secret to longevity and healthy aging is to continually challenge yourself, despite aches and pains, general fatigue, temporary or permanent disappointment in friends, family and life.
And anyone who reaches late 50s, early 60s, has been visited by all of the above.
My colleague John Webster -- a former courts and politics reporter and opinion editor took a decade long break from writing and ran our newsroom -- its finances, its computer system, its architectural redesign.
In 2013, he's recommitted himself to writing, plus do all of his regular duties. And he's doing an amazing job. He'll be a regular Boomer U section writer. See his Boomer U story today.
And this week, he's written an in-depth examination of the health care changes rolling our way. I finally get what's coming, thanks to John's well-written and easy to understand articles.
Thanks, John, for showing others how to challenge yourself and educate others at the same time.
