One of the truths about aging is that there is only one way out, and unless we are in constant pain of one kind or another the door marked exit is unappealing. So the daily question for us is “can I make the time I have, this day, this evening, this moment better? And by better I do not mean another helping of ice cream. Within the reality of my fragility, can I be more alive?
The research on brain plasticity offers the opportunity to get involved in learning new ways to understand ourselves and the people in our lives who mean so much to us. We can learn how to re-route the synapse roads that take us to destinations we should avoid.
At this moment I am writing on an I pad; the first time I’ve tried to post a note to one of my blogs using this wonderful instrument. By the time I’ve learned to do this moderately well I will have constructed a number of new pathways in my brain, new neural connections, new eye and hand coordinations, new ways of being alive.
