    A Book For Seniors Written By A Senior

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Making The Golden Years Count: A Guidebook For Seniors January 2006, Denver, Colorado - As author David Wayne Silva entered his senior years, he faced the loss of his beloved spouse, had to come to terms with retirement, and found himself battling with heart failure and arthritis. He expressed his thoughts and feelings in a journal, and as others read his personal recollections, they too began to share their stories. Thus Senior Moments, a wonderfully heartfelt and practical guide for seniors, was born. Senior Moments is a collection of essays, meditations and stories that, the author says, ¿¿will both inspire and help senior citizens through both the good times and the difficult days that accompany the growing old process.¿ The book illustrates different ways of dealing with isolation and loneliness, chronic illness, and personal relationships, and urges readers to look at the process of aging with humor and good intentions¿¿to observe the beauty in the natural world, to take care of their bodies, to exercise and eat a balanced diet, to maintain old and build new relationships, to maintain and reinforce their spirituality, to laugh more and cry less. Author David Wayne Silva is a seventy-six-year-old retired teacher and school administrator, who spent thirty-eight years working in the public schools with teachers, children, and parents of all races and backgrounds, and in so doing, gave much of his time to providing family counseling. After the loss of his wife of twenty-one years, he met others who were grieving and seeking counsel, and soon found himself facilitating a counseling group for widowers, many of whom were senior citizens. The author of two non-fiction books and a book of short stories, Silva encourages other seniors to write their own books. He now lectures senior citizen groups on how to write their own story. ¿Suddenly, life,¿ he says, ¿is once again an adventure and aging is only a necessary annoyance.¿ The baby boomer generation, estimated to be 78 million strong, will soon enter their retirement years and will face many common chronic health problems as well as their own mortality. ¿Senior Moments contains strategies, Silva says, ¿that will help all seniors get the most out of their golden years. It encourages each senior to build a new self-image, and to carry with them memories of their successes, not their failures.¿
