I first got hooked on "Doctor Who" as a teenager in the '70s, but stopped watching as I got older. When I recently checked the 2010 season out of the library, I quickly got sucked right back in. I've got plenty of catching up to do, since the show has been running for decades.

For about three weeks after having hip replacement surgery in 2010, I felt I was doomed to a life as an Old Man. For the first time in 60 years, I briefly stopped feeling like a kid and looked at the face of aging.

Some folks march with heads held high into their senior years. That seemed more than I could manage.

Infallible youth and the power of "bar cute" have evolved into vulnerability, conditional surrender, and the wisdom of age. Nothing compares with the vibrant visual symphony of the colorful leaves of fall. The summer sun is exquisite, but equally magical is winter's first snow.
