Dr. Bill Taylor, 97

Bill Taylor Catching Your Memories

Dr. Bill Taylor packed away his windsurfer when he was 92. Didn’t have the perfect balance he needed anymore. He didn’t pack away his zest for life, though. Now 97, he lives at Highland Green in Topsham until it’s warm enough to drive down to his camp in Waterboro. That’s right, drive. He also drives every Sunday to Unity Center for Spiritual Growth in Windham. What drives Bill? Curiosity, he told me.

He talks about that curiosity, the lure of windsurfing, some of the adventures he’s had these past 97 years, and love in the latest episode of Conversations About Aging, a Catching Health with Diane Atwood special series.
