We all know her- Joan Rivers, a witty comedian who has been in the press for some 50 years here in America. If I were to list the top 10 celebrities who have inspired me, Joan would be in the top 5. Even though her political views are very different than mine, some of her jokes not so funny, and we differ on the need for constant plastic surgery; I have great admiration for her. She has been an independent woman, a hard worker- even into her 80’s and she can laugh at herself! What an inspiration- to live a life so full. She has truly embodied “joy in aging”.
