We Ain’t Done Yet

Monday, June 18th, 2018   5:16 pm |  Category:   Life   |  Add Comment  | Author:     bio

Did you ever believe retirement could be so much fun? It is hard to believe that we will be retired 22 years this coming December. In the beginning we were a bit skeptical about how we would survive. I mean we were used to two full-time salaries and were going to drop down to one …more

Quiet Time – Good Habit to Follow

Monday, April 23rd, 2018   10:29 am |  Category:   Health, Life   |  Add Comment  | Author:     bio

One of the things I believe we must do daily, especially as we age, is to set aside a particular – “Quiet” – time for ourselves. For myself, I am referring to a time when I have anywhere from an hour to an hour and one-half of “just me” time. No disruptions, no noise, no …more

Trading heels for tennis shoes

What woman wouldn’t want to trade heels for tennis shoes? Recently one of my retired friends said that was one of her favorite things about retirement.

I am now officially retired. Okay, I’m a writer and writers never really retire. I am now officially not getting paid regularly (which probably makes me ever more of a writer than I was.) Retirement, the few months of it that I have already experienced, appears to be like an infinite number of Saturdays strung together. …more

Making the Late-Life Living Decision

Moving to a senior community isn’t for everyone, yet it was right for us.   The move came only after we had followed a dream: that of retiring and building a log house in a rural area.   As the years passed our daughter, just 60 miles away, moved across the state on the other …more

No matter how much research and preparation you do before traveling, things aren’t going to go exactly as you planned them. Flexibility is the key. The sooner you learn to roll with the punches the more fun and less stress you’ll have on your vacation.   During a recent trip to Iceland, we woke up …more

Buddha once said:   “Your body is precious. It is your vehicle for awakening. Treat it with care.”   I recently agreed to accompany my wife to a series of lectures on diabetes which is an affliction my wife has lived with for more than thirty years now. Today was the first class and while …more

When my beautiful mother suffered an insidious stroke that led to her death thirteen months later, my life crumbled. I found myself immediately enrolled in the School of Hard Knocks for a graduate degree in desolation. This event pushed me into the role of caregiver for my much-loved mother as she approached the end of …more
