We had the pleasure to meet Stephen Jepson (77 years old ) and saw his presentation at a conference about functioning aging in Orlando. His motto is “Never leave the Playground”. Learning new skills, using hands and feet promotes cognition and brain function. It also enriches our lives and gives us an idea of how much more we can achieve if we try.
It doesn’t have to be perfect. The process of learning brings the benefits. We were lucky to get a picture taken together with Stephen.
Katja decided to try it out his philosophy at the next campground stop at Ochlockonee River State park.
