In this spring edition of our Wimmera & Grampians Senior's magazine there is so much for you to read about, enjoy, and give you a spark to try something new.
As Sophia Loren says there IS a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.
And isn't this what we reach for in every edition of our Seniors magazine? It gives you a time for reflection, a bit of humour, a new craft or recipe to try, and to take a different perspective.
Then when you have been inspired by the uplifting stories of how other local folk are managing their daily trials, and see how they have coped through disappointment and sorrow, and came out on the other side much stronger as a result, having learned endurance and wisdom, then it's not so hard when it is our turn.
Yet we are still here. Still here, and, if anything, stronger for all that we have been through.
In this edition of Seniors, you can learn all about the fabulous reasons why we should knit! Not only do you finish up with a new pair of slippers, but the calming results of those rhythmic needles are also what makes the craft so worthwhile.
You know the saying, you've probably heard it hundreds of times from some pencil thin dogooder - Use it, or Lose it - well, this time it is our brains that get a workout.
It's more than the usual crossword, or the inscrutable sudoku, it's a ripper of a 'Find the figures of Speech ' picture puzzle. There are a few easy ones - like 'Time Flies' but most are tough little nuts to crack. Have fun with those.
And then it is time to try the cooking. Not only do you get a new look at nutmeg, but you can try the pot pie in your old cast iron camping pots.
They are heavy, but boy do they put a crusty, crispy taste to whatever you cook in them.
Try our ham pot pie - it's to die for.
Enjoy your read of the Wimmera & Grampians Seniors magazine. There's something for everyone in it this season.
