    Angels or Alzheimers: The Wisdom to Know the Difference

    by
    “Wisdom is one thing in life that does not diminish with age. Wisdom is learning how to live in harmony with the world as it is in any given moment. One aspect of that wisdom is the deep understanding that we are all in the same boat. Out of that comes compassion — compassion for yourself, compassion for others, compassion for the world.
