Greetings one and all…. This morning I am recalling a childhood experience – cabin fever. Cabin fever is defined as the sensation felt after being confined and isolated for an extended period of time. This is a time during which we can become irritable, anxious, and antsy. As a child, this usually happened in the […]
Greetings one and all…. I’m writing this on Day 1 after the declaration of the “stay at home” executive order by our governor.

Greetings one and all… A few weeks ago, I presented a program about aging at numerous locations in Denver. Along with other community organizations and agencies, we gathered to Celebrate Life! My audience consisted of individuals over 60 years of age, many of whom are dealing with serious, progressive diseases and/or disabilities. Consequently, I carefully […]
Greetings one and all… Standing at my desk this morning (I love my standing desk!), I am a wee bit unsettled by the events of the past few weeks. The coronavirus. The dramatic drop in the price of oil. And the subsequent volatility of the stock market. Watching the news, I feel as if everything […]

Greetings one and all… This weekend I received an email that truly touched my heart. A gentleman in the Midwest wrote to express his appreciation of a podcast I created and offered over the past four years – a series of conversations regarding the caregiving journey. Serving as a caregiver for numerous family members throughout […]
Greetings one and all… Today, I am pondering the past and the future. Perhaps you are experiencing a similar divergence in attention with the start of the New Year. The beginning of a new year prompts reflection on the previous year. It’s a time to assess the events of the past while anticipating the possibilities […]
Greetings one and all… This past week, I concluded my 2019 schedule of programs and presentations. As in years past, the last program of the season dealt with the issue of grief and the holidays. For those who have suffered a recent significant loss, the holidays can be downright brutal. For the rest of us, […]
Greetings one and all… It’s hard to believe that the holidays are here. Although Thanksgiving was late this year, the holidays seemingly snuck up on me. Like everyone else, I have been more than fully occupied with work, with family, and with LIFE this year. Perhaps that is why I am longing for a simple […]
