March 19, 2015: Reading 'Being Mortal' by Atul Gawande

on Thursday, March 19, 2015   10:15 a.m. – the daytime hours are going fast. I made my first two calls on my smart phone – one assisted by Alexandra – the other this morning to a dear friend in Amherst – I first rented a room from her in the 90’s – and from all the many rooms I rented between 1991 and 2014 she is the only with whom I’ve become friends over the years – and may stay with her this summer again. 684 more words
