             Jan Morris passes away at the age of 94

Associated Press
November 20, 2020

Excerpt:  "NEW YORK (AP) — Jan Morris, the celebrated journalist, historian, world traveler and fiction writer who in middle age became a pioneer of the transgender movement, has died at 94.

Morris died in Wales on Friday morning, according to her literary representative, United Agents. Her agent Sophie Scard confirmed her death. Morris had been in failing health. Additional details were not immediately available."

I'm sure that many of you have read Jan Morris's books.
I personally found much in common between my youth and her youth as described in her book Conundrum.
Sad to hear of her passing.

I found this nice article about her amazing, and, for us particularly, inspiring life.
If the second half of my life is half as good as hers, it will be a life well lived.
