Saturday, October 6th, 2018   11:43 am |  Category:   Life, Relationships   |  1 Comment  | Author:     bio

A 75 year-old man had been married 40+ years. His wife cooked and cleaned, took care of the kids who are now on their own, and he provided income. They had sex once in a while and took each other for granted. He was content, she was sort of happy and then she died, and …more

Names!   There were so many names.   My eyes scanned the sea of names etched in stone in front of me. The sound of falling water permeated my surroundings as my fingers slowly traced over the letters on the smooth surface.   I could feel the warm July sun on my back as I …more

How many times have you heard someone say, “you’re too old to do that” or “at your age why would you want to start something new?” If you pay attention you will find it is a common theme. It was a recurring theme I heard when I interviewed the women for my film.   I …more

On a recent trip to Upstate New York for a family wedding, my husband and I nearly came face to face with a flying wild turkey. We are more urban than rural and – save for stray deer from the nearby woods – our wildlife encounters are generally limited to small birds and cute bunnies. …more

I would have to take a small financial penalty on my pension if I was to retire that year. What would …more

Most people fantasize about living their dreams in retirement. We don’t always know exactly what those “dreams” are. We just know that our retirement will involve the pursuit of said “dreams” … in some great big, exciting, spectacular, vague kind of way.   I think one of the reasons people sometimes feel dissatisfied in retirement …more
