I am already living in a place that I had a vision about many years ago. That's why I moved here. I love living near water and now I live ON the water. I actually float in a house on a large river so I have water on all sides. But my vision that got me here also had an important caveat and that was a promise to myself that I would live in the area of a fairly large city for the rest of my life. Having tried living in the country a couple of times in my life I have found that I am a genetic city person and thus I will stay in a city. Luckily for both versions the water and the house or totally within the boundary of a pretty large city. So I can have the quietness of a river. I can sit and look at the water or go kayaking, but if I want, I can hop on a train, bus, or car and be downtown in a very short time. I have found my perfect place to live.

Another part of my vision includes new skis, boots, and poles and my vision often
How will I reach this vision? I intend to become the go-to expert on healthy aging. And that's where you, the readers come in, please let me know what questions you might have about your aging. I've written about aging before and I will continue doing so - but I'm envisioning doing the research that I have put off and procrastinated about and when it is done hopefully we will all know how to live healthier, longer, more prosperous, and happier lives - filled with the visions that we want for ourselves. I will be continuing on this line of thought for a while and you will hear about it.
