Hilding Lindquist writes about aging, ageism and end of life issues, all of which he believes are better understood by experience.

That was my photo and description accompanying my published posts when I wrote for The New York Times local blog covering three towns in New Jersey, Maplewood, Millburn, and South Orange. The blog was appropriately titled "The Local". It went up on the internet in March, 2009. I wrote eight posts between June and December, 2009. The blog itself lasted another six-plus months, posting its last entry on June 30, 2010 at 2:09 PM.

Here is my "full" bio in Who's Who of the The Local:

Hilding Lindquist: Going into his 70’s on hemodialysis and being evaluated for the kidney transplant list is not what Hilding Lindquist planned, but neither is blogging for The Local. He will write about aging, ageism and end-of-life issues in the three towns — all of which are better understood by experience. He will share his while inviting others to share theirs here, in their own comments and in interviews. Hilding came to Maplewood in 2002 after seven years in Fairbanks, Alaska, ending his long career in developing and administering data systems there. Always writing and now a playwright, he worked as a programmer, analyst, and administrative consultant in Seattle for more than 20 years.
