Guerrilla Aging: Faith and Spirituality

October 24, 2014

  My last post concerned death.  This one does, as well.  Lest you think I have changed my blog to Death in the Boomer Lane, let me assure you this isn’t the case.  After today’s post, I will return once again to less weighty issues, in which I can incorporate satire, immaturity, and coffee Haagen […]
