Take time to listen to a talkative elderly stranger.
Can you imagine what life would be like if you outlived most of your family and friends? It's tough enough to make real friends as a younger adult. In your late 80s? WHEW!
While camping in Monterey, we began talking to our neighboring camper, an 89-year-old man from Lodi who still gets around quite well, camping and all. He was an interesting guy with lots of information to share.
A challenge for readers: Take some time out to talk to an elderly person at some length. WHAT is interesting about THEM? Learn a life story. Ask for a pointer, some advice. Given this kind of opportunity, they won't let you down. Let us know, here, how your effort turned out.
