  1. Very interesting article. When I was younger, I would have happily accepted that free trip into space. Now I’m old enough that physical limitations are an issue. However, I’m still “adventuring,” if moving to new places, immersing myself in foreign cultures and languages, and reinventing myself professionally count. None have been “comfortable.” When my grandmother was in her late 80s, she had to admit that she was not going to realize her lifelong dream of visiting China. Had she had the opportunity twenty years earlier, she’d have been there in a heartbeat. Don’t lump those of us with adventurous spirits and failing bodies in with the lumps who never live more than 15 miles from where they graduated high school, please.
