How wonderful it is to wake up to another fresh day - every day. It is easy to take this simple daily gift for granted isn't it? One of the most positive people I encountered was a lady named Elizabeth. When I last met her she had almost run out of days. She was actually lying on her deathbed on the day before she died.

Timothy Carroll was born in 1937 in England where he was privately educated. He first came to USA in 1997 and married his second wife, Yvonne, in 2005.
He once owned some retail outlets processing raw coffee which was distributed wholesale and by mail order. Since 1969 he has worked in the British pensions industry. He has specialized in advice to British expatriates and has worked among them overseas in Hong Kong, Spain, Belgium and now USA.
Yvonne and Timothy are party-people - enjoying a wide circle of friends among their married and single contemporaries. He certified as a scuba-diver at age 70 thanks to his step-son-in-law, Lee, owning a dive shop. He also enjoys sailing and keeps a sailboat on Lake Hartwell, GA. He has had fun white-water rafting with Yvonne's grandchildren too.
He was encouraged to write by the experiences of friends, his wife and his own cross-cultural experience of living among different nationalities in a variety of countries. He decided to assemble ideas and supporting accounts that might inspire hope among the increasing number of people who, like him, survived their first 50 years and found themselves alone and at a crossroads.
He is now "The Voice of Senior Romantics."
