Curious Journeys and Quixotic Quests Beyond the Youth of Old Age
 

(Color Edition)

Authored by Elayne Wareing Fitzpatrick

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.
