Boomers just don’t seem to want to be a part of it. Face it: They aren’t coming. Boomers defy aging. They have no interest [...]

Humans are driven to convey a message. For decades, Richard and I have evangelistically expressed our core conviction that long life is a gift from God, not to be wasted, but [...]

“Are We Where We Are?”

Richard and I stood at another glass-enclosed kiosk and studied the enlarged map of the old city. We consulted and photographed such maps frequently during our recent 6-week/10 countries trip in Europe. We loved the confidence and security experienced when we found the red circle indicating, “You Are HERE.” One particular time Richard, trying to get [...]
