Author, artist, columnist and Quail Creek resident Jim Asbell will give a free talk based on his recent book, Live Well With Terminal Illness and Other Crappy Diseases on Monday, November 7 at 2:00 p.m. in the Gold Room of the Madera Clubhouse.
Jim, a self-described goof ball, will provide warm, witty and practical advice on how to approach life and its challenges. He will share his life story, one filled with many difficulties, beginning with polio as an infant and continuing throughout his life to his present day battle with incurable cancer. More importantly, Jim will discuss his personal philosophical outlook that not only allows him to survive these obstacles but to thrive. “It’s a philosophy of life, not a philosophy of coping,” he says. “Life is not just about surviving the storm, it’s also about learning to dance in the rain.”
Please come prepared to laugh.
