"I am fortunate that my own parents are, for the most part, still mentally and physically well.  I often ask myself, though, for how much longer? What I will do when they are less well and will need closer attention?  The answer was surprisingly obvious:  The axis of my life will change. The 'selfish years' of minding my own career and immediate family will have to end and I will need to prioritize the people whose lives made my own possible."
