As fall approaches, I’ve gathered friends and family (including my 75-year-old mother) for these dips, which are getting cooler and more frequent. Taking a dip makes me realize that I am alive and there is nothing other than the moment I am. I am excited by the anticipation of the fall and winter plunge that await me. —Allison Dunnett, Vancouver

“My retirement gift to me was to take my granddaughter to NYC to ‘do it right’ in March 2020. All reservations were made, including four rows from front, center to ‘Hamilton’.
