Deep breath – the Inernational Association of Gerontology & Geriatrics quadrennial 21st World Congress kicked off with registration today, with the full-blown program from tomorrow through Thursday. In San Francisco!!
Blessings on the small but mighty circle of supporters whose big & small contribution$$ got me here & for the side trip to Auburn to visit my brave cousin, Bob Ripley, who’s doing all he can to have all the time he can with family & friends. The short trip made a BIG difference I never tightening broadening deepening family relationships at a time when they matter most.
Mega thanks to the many whose best wishes, blessings & “You go, girl”!! encouragement helped power the AWEsome forces that got me here. Never underestimate the POWer of invisible but mighty positive energies.
Put in a lot of walking today to spots that hold great memories of trips with Scott & Mom, with just Mom, solo. Photo shoots with Sissy, Stephie & Sissette at Aquatic Park, breakfast at the Buena Vista, drinks at The Fairmont’s Tonga Room, dinner on Tiburon. I don’t have the spare $ to indulge, but oh I can recall the playful times & the ab fab memories that helped Mom stay power-ful to the last moment of her life in this playground.
Let the mega moments that are sure to fill the IAGG begin!!
