CURIOUS JOURNEYS AND QUIXOTIC QUESTS BEYOND THE YOUTH OF OLD AGE (color edition) is a philosophic romp with a 'Don Quixote and Zorba the Greek-intoxicated' journalist who believes that life is about taking in, mulling over, and sharing what we learn. By means of essays, aphorisms, and some time-tested poetry -- in concert with photo impressions of poetic locales around the globe still unspoiled by industrial development -- the author shares some life-affirming wisdom, from Socrates to Existentialism and beyond, gleaned during a lifetime of questing. By example, she challenges readers to transform their own lives and dare to see the world through the eyes of the playful, upfront child they once were.
