I want to navigate the nuances of my aging and living well with grace. When my agile, strong, coherent self succumbs to gravity, frailty, and slips of memory, my strong will, endurance, and fierce independence is likely to leave me more stubborn, less flexible, hard of hearing, seeing, and just plain hard headed.  So I hereby leave behind these notes-to-self. If I am even a little like my grandmother, my father, or my mother, I will need to rely on touchstone reminders; crumb navigation.
