Create Life-giving Connections during COVID-19

Greetings one and all…. I’m writing this on Day 1 after the declaration of the “stay at home” executive order by our governor. If we are to flatten the curve of COVID-19, social distancing is mandatory. Ironic, right? At a moment in time when we need and want each other the most, physical separation is... Read more

Journey of Aging: Older and Wiser

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... Read more

Are You Feeling Unsettled?

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... Read more

Care is Everywhere

Greetings one and all… A few weeks ago, I witnessed a scene that highlighted the fact that care is everywhere if we have eyes to see and ears to hear. What I saw and heard was hope-FULL and inspirational. The scenario was simple, yet sacred. Standing in line at the grocery store, I observed an... Read more

Your Voice Makes a Difference

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... Read more

MLK Day: Quotes that Inspire

It’s the third Monday of January, and at first glance, it’s just another Monday. Maybe it was Facebook, today’s Google doodle, or the fact that the banks are closed that reminded you that today is Martin Luther King, Jr Day. Today is set aside to remember Martin Luther King, Jr the activist and leader of... Read more

Hindsight might be 2020, but I hate reruns

I’d argue the least helpful sort of sight is hindsight. In support of this argument, I call my first witness, William Mulock, who once said the following: “I am not in the habit of looking back – I leave that till I get old.” On its own, this quote is fine. But like most things,... Read more
