"Old age crept up on me like a wounded soldier. I had a middle-aged belly and approaching my 60s. I didn’t want to stagger into retirement—but surf into it. I didn’t want to slip into the sexagenarian night. I wanted to dive into it headfirst, doing backflips and somersaults." Excerpt from Santa Barbara is Where the Heart Is.
