Since 1979, when David Greenberger first encountered the residents of Boston's Duplex Nursing Home (where he was the Activities Director), he has been illustrating the axiom, 'when you get older everything will be different,' in a variety of ways. Posing evocative questions to the residents, such as 'Which do you prefer, coffee or meat?' and 'How close can you get to a penguin?' to the residents, and wrote down or recorded their free-ranging responses. He began publishing them in his 'zine entitled, THE DUPLEX PLANET.
