In meeting someone new, it is always interesting to discover the person within.

I was introduced to “Jim” during casual conversation between him and a mutual acquaintance.

Later, as our conversation developed, I learned about his background and approach to life.

Although he is dealing with some of the effects of aging, (he is 74), he is involved in developing his talents (playing the banjo), service to others (helping repair a car), and is unfailingly polite.

His upbeat attitude and humorous approach to life make him an engaging conversationalist.

I would have guessed him to be twenty years younger with his enthusiasm.

It is a lift to talk to him.
