My life is relatively simple now, Sirfurryanimal, at my age of 75...I really like the whole thing...I suppose that a special joy is the easy access to all kinds of learning, via YouTube and the Internet.
Also (and SOLVED is a part of this), the opportunity, so incredible, to make connections with people from all over the world, I learn a huge amount. And not only facts, but learning different points of view, whole different ways of being in the world. They are authentic friendships too, even though you never meet the people in person, probably. Since I began on Ask.com late 2010, still maybe ten of us still in contact through a whole decade now.
