Swedish Dagny has her own blog, where she posts daily. She writes about ordinary things, exchanges messages with friends, and sometimes peruses dating ads. In the evenings she attends parties, never turning down a glass of bubbly. She is a regular on TV shows; people recognise her on the street. The fact that blogger Dagny was born in 1912 seems irrelevant. She says that being active and willing to learn new things is not a question of age. Although fate hasn’t always served her well, she refuses to drown in the past and looks forward to whatever comes. The message contained in her story says: Cast off apprehension and trepidation – life is too short!
