Prepare Yourself for the Age of 'Superaging' https://t.co/yfIJSfWyZt #cdnboomers #boomers #aging #health #brainhealth— Booming Encore (@BoomingEncore) January 3, 2017
|This sums it up!|
I've been a contributing member of society. I worked long hours, raised my kids, and I am content to watch my kids raise their kids. I am perked up by their visits. It makes me younger. I teach them what I can. There comes a day, however, when one is content to let others bear the burdens. Many wonderful people around here have found new careers after retiring. At age 70+ our snowblower and lawn tractor repair guy had a good, long career with Ottawa transit. He's 'retired' but not for leisure! It's good to have a purpose. This recording of our wee nature preserve is mine!
We had surprise visitors at the end of the school's two-week Christmas break. I was so happy to see them. They are teaching Izzy (6) to play chess. She has mastered the movements of the pieces. She set up the board with the pieces in different order. It made for an interesting game!
Josee (8) is designing a computer game. They are using a great book they bought, which uses an app called Scratch. It's a free app, designed by MIT, where you can create games, interactive stories and such.
Izzy and grampa fed the deer. It was pretty cold. We get them for March Break, and I am so excited. I look at our young people and I feel such promise for the future.
