What do the holidays mean?

December 6, 2017

After my rousing pod walk on Thanksgiving Day, I was very much looking forward to sitting in our family room, enjoying the sun streaming through the windows, drinking a nice cup of coffee and reading the paper.

I know you all have been sitting on the edge of your seat, just wondering where Ken and Nancy went on vacation. Well, the answer is beautiful Asheville, North Carolina!

Even though I live in a suburban, built-up area, I can still find nice, natural places to walk.  One such place is the campus at Wellesley College, specifically around their Lake Waban. It was a glorious fall day last week and I wanted to take advantage of this nice weather.  Here are some of the […]

Working in the 21st Century

Boy, times sure have changed. Sometimes I feel that I was born in the wrong century. My volunteer consulting project recently started up. I am very excited about this year’s team since we have a mix of both “older” volunteers (older meaning they are over 50) and “younger” volunteers (younger being under 30). Everyone is […]
