I consider myself to be an eternal student, as I love dialogue. I love listening to, and sharing with, patients (most are seniors), family, friends, and the people I have been fortunate enough to build relationships with in life. I do not think I have fully become the person I want to be, but I am on my way. My effort is genuine.
When I first talked about writing this book, people looked at me like I was crazy. So many thoughts ran through my mind, as a result of conversations with patients and friends, as well as my own journey of self-discovery. As I sat down, organized my thoughts, and forced myself to finish this book, I learned some great things along the way. I believe I am a better person today, because of it. I have grown as a son, husband, and father to my children.
If I could personally talk to each of you about the concepts in Second Childhood, I would gladly do so. However, since this is not possible, I set out to engage with you through this book.
