New Beginnings

Every year brings new beginnings.
The gym was packed yesterday with everyone beginning on their fitness routines
Weight Watchers was packed on Saturday with everyone beginning a new diet
Our University Town suddenly got busy again with students beginning a new semester
My daughter-in-law began a new job
In a few weeks there will be a new beginning for a new president

I'm sure you can count my new beginnings surrounding you as well. I think I look at each day as a new beginning -- it is certainly better than looking at it as a doomed ending.

On another note -- I've written about this book before Still Alice. Today, author Lisa Genova had this book released by a new publisher and if you haven't read it you should. When I read it, it was my life -- I couldn't believe how accurate a portrayal this was for a fiction book about someone with Early On-Set Alzheimer's. Go to your local books store and get it if you can. If it isn't on your shelf this week it will be soon. If you want to learn more about this disease read this book --it's an easy read.

Thank you so much, Kris, for spreading the word about Still Alice! I hope we can squeeze as much good out of the book as possible.

Happy New Year to you and your family,
Lisa
