I am Sylvia. Almost 84, I have an overwhelming interest in people and the stories that make them what they are. We all have stories to tell, lots and lots of them and this is an opportunity to share and remember them.
At my age every day matters. It is important not to waste any of my life ahead so I decided to take on a challenge, something I really could enjoy doing and something that would take me right to the end of my life. I am terrible at Social Media and one of the worst things in my life ever, is a password. So here is my challenge.
There are many good opportunities in the newer world of technology and social media. We can keep in touch. We can share, whether we are mobile or not. So please join me on the journey.
As I am here at the beginning so you will see some of my stories in Enjoy and please bring in your friends with you
