“Men do not quit playing because they grow old; they grow old because they quit playing”. -Oliver Wendell Holmes-
At 93 years old… Clara is a prime example of aging gracefully… with a playful spirit.
Anti-aging studies have proven over and over again that physical and mental activity is one sure way to stave off the aging process. Aging research tells us, longevity is enhanced by staying physically active, reading books, having hobbies and interests, eating healthy foods, participating in an active social life and taking an interest in others.
Clara is a YouTube cooking celebrity with her popular Depression Cooking segment. Not only is she a “Star” because she’s entertaining… but a stellar model of staying active and serving others… long after she’s expected to be rocking in her chair.
Clara, is a perfect example of aging with grace. Along with sharing her “depression cooking” ideas… she shares her experiences of living during the Great Depression….with fond memories and with a smile on her face… mind you. I’ve included two segments for your enjoyment. Hey, Clara… you’re the greatest… and such an inspiration.
Allow yourself a few minutes to watch this amazing woman!

Isn’t she terrific!
P.S. I bet Clara has always lived an active lifestyle. I must keep her in mind… when I want to slow down a bit. Retirement? No such thing if you keep your interests alive and are willing to share them.
