Hello, readers. Perhaps it’s the decline of Covid isolation, a time when we are seeing the world through a fresh perspective after months of living inside our shells. Perhaps it’s the hot weather steaming our brains. Perhaps it’s because thousands of people are waking up to the idea that society’s definition of old people is seriously in need of reform.
Regardless of the reason, the results are amazing: more than three dozen stories published on
