With the events leading up to, and the frenetic activity following the death of my father-in-law on New Year’s Day, I found myself feeling unfocused and generally out of it for the first couple of weeks and have been getting my stride back since then. But it also gave me a chance to put some thoughts together about my trip last summer as CARP’s representative at the 50 & Più Olympiad, in Puglia, Italy. In previous posts I’ve written about… Continue

We are emerging from a dark era of leadership. According to the Conference Board, between 1987 and 2009, the level of employee job satisfaction plummeted from 61% to 45%, and the number who find their work “interesting” sank from 70% to 51%. Equally disturbing,… Continue

For my first post, I am going to throw a few nuances of the human condition your way. Most you know, some you might not. We have all learned that being tactile is an important aspect of being human and we don't need to read about it to be aware of the healing, relaxing, comforting, intimate and loving aspect of touch. More on why that is so in a moment.
Mammals are a gregarious, yet fairly monogamous species. Very few humans are hermits. Even those who have agoraphobia will seek… Continue

Maybe it’s easy for athletes, but for most of us, being fit is an ongoing battle. With aging, medical issues complicate our intent.
Friends Mary Ellison, 80, and Evelyn Hunt, 67, are determined to succeed. Mary, a retired nurse, once liked hiking and backpacking. After being widowed, job and home responsibilities drove out fitness. Evelyn, with a lifelong weight problem, played tennis before she stopped exercising.
Using the QUEST program as catalyst, they now work out… Continue

The sun is weakly shining through today. yeah! It seems like we have been living in grey land since last winter. Where has the sun gone? okay, as I write this my room now has yellow light! It seems the sun has actually won its struggle and is now shining. So much for writing this blog....I'm on my way out the door.

I just got done cutting up boxes and bundling them up in a bundle small enough to meet the demands of the recycling company. I agree with the sentiments of my Brother In Law when he says there had better not be a recycling program when he gets to Heaven of he just might choose to go elsewhere.

I have never kept a blog and don't know what I am doing or why but "blogging" seems to be very popular so I thought I would see what its all about.
I can't imagine that anyone would be interested in the relatively mundane events in my life.
I just signed up for a couple courses at the local Community College. The first starts this Tuesday. "Introduction to Digital SLR Photography". I hope to learn how to use all the buttons and settings on my camera.

After offering this experiment of A Year To Live to others I started feeling fearful about leading a group of people through this deeply personal process. As I sat with the fear I realized that I was holding onto an outdated image of leadership. One that didn't resonate with me. My intention with this experiment was initially to do it for myself, and then offer others the opportunity to live it for themselves. I offered to share things with the group as they unfold for me and give suggestions,… Continue

One of Canada’s pioneers in furthering the cause of Canadians as we age, Murray Morgenthau, passed away following complications from a heart attack on January 1, 2010 at the age of 89.
In 1984, Murray Morgenthau, along with his surviving wife of 60 years, Lillian, co-founded CARP – an acronym for the Canadian Association of Retired Persons – dedicated to serving the interests of those we now call Zoomers. Together they took the organization from a group of ten determined friends… Continue

Well, it’s here….2010! This is the time that the world is making New Year’s resolutions.
The problem with doing this is that most of us set the standards too high. Some goals are truly impossible to reach.
Definition of resolution;
resolving, firmness, purpose or thing resolved upon, decision of court, vote or assembly.
Most resolutions are made to loose weight, exercise more, eat healthier or even make more money and… Continue

Murray Morgenthau, co-founder of CARP, the organization where I work, passed away on New Year's Day, 2010. I've worked closely with Murray over eight of the past ten years. He was also my father-in-law, whom I've known for the past 28 years. I was so honoured when the family asked me to speak about Murray's work life at the funeral. Here is what I said:
In 1986, when CARP had about 5,000 members or so, Murray Morgenthau asked me to… Continue

This blog is about my 4 to 6 month long North American road trip - just me, my SUV and my kayak. I plan to go west to Vancouver, then to California. From there, to Texas and Mexico, then on to Florida and up the east coast of the USA. From there, I will go to the Canadian Maritime provinces then back home. What I'm hoping for is to meet people along the way and exchange life stories. There may be a book following all this... pictures, stories, experiences. I'd like to add that this trip is… Continue
