I was saddened to learn from a disconsolate assembly of sixty-something family and friends in Edinburgh last week, about the recent passing of a former school teacher of mine – 101 years of age no less – one who contentedly endured and defiantly persisted as bright as a button – right up to the critical, …more

When I was a little boy my hero was Mickey Mantle.   In those days, CBS owned the New York Yankees and the only game on TV was the Saturday Game of the Week featuring the Yankees and whatever hapless team they might be playing at the time.   Whenever I could, I would spend …more

Was this REALLY how it was going to end? It was the last day of summer after all, my last day of an amazing summer, and my last day working on the beach as an umbrella boy. It was a sunless blustery day with only the most resolved beach goers venturing out! Maybe it was …more

The seeds of a Senior Gap Year abroad—the age-old British tradition of spending time far from home—were sown when I was 22 and doing graduate work in France’s Loire Valley. It was 1979, and my time abroad ignited a love affair with France and uncovered a wanderlust that compelled me to travel the continent.   …more

Are you the epitome of the sizzling ageless boomer babe that women envy or try to emulate? Do you work hard to stay in shape, look hot in your skinny jeans and project an “I Am Woman Hear Me Roar” image in your leather biker jacket? When you walk into a room of your peers, …more

Christmas has come and gone. The presents have long been stored away in a closet or taken back to the store and returned. The last of the Christmas cookies and candy have disappeared and the decorations are safe in their boxes for another year.   While it is already well into January as I write …more

Author:     posts:  1    Author's   bio

When meeting with clients and preparing financial plans, long-term care, or “facing incapacity,” is by far the most difficult subject to bring up.

I have been asked to speak to a group of aspiring authors about lessons I have learned since I began my writing journey over a decade ago.
