Keeping the brain and body functioning well

Research indicates that continued engagement in challenging mental activities keeps the brain performing well. My path is to be constantly learning new complex physical things (many would regard what I do as playing); at age 72 I am learning to fly an airplane and juggle clubs.

My creativity has been stimulated. “The essence of creativity is not the possession of some special talent, it is much more the ability to play”. John Cleese
