Attempting to make sense of her life, and change her sad disposition to a happy one, the author of In the Backyard: Relearning the Art of Aging, Dying and Making Love seeks out the help of her in-house therapist/husband, Dr. George Nemeth. The accredited psychologist's answers to the big questions provide a compassionate and humorous backdrop on to how to seize the day and not give up hope when faced with the nasty realities of poor health and unrealized aspirations.
Mirrors, like monsters, come in all shapes and sizes. They sneak up on you when you least expect it and take a big bite out of your life. Monsters hide in the dark. No such luck with mirrors. You can't avoid the damn things. Nor can you avoid getting old. Time to slay the dragon, I tell myself. I'm old enough. Fight back. Better to be predator than prey.
