If you are at or near the traditional age of retirement, this series of blogs is for you.
I’ve made a study of what it takes to ensure a rich full and satisfying 2nd chapter of life. In these blogs I’ll be sharing the insights I’ve gained with the hopes they will be of benefit to you.

Joan is a talented artist. At 80 years of age she just started painting four years ago. I picked up the piece of art that she wanted to donate to our Rotary fund-raising event this morning. As I listened to her talk about the joy she was experiencing from painting I was reminded once again how important it is for all of us to find our passion and pursue it. This is the royal road to satisfaction in life.
To paraphrase Henry David Thoreau, the mass of men leads lives of quiet desperation and go to their graves with their songs unsung.
What is your song? That is your passion. Did you have it during your working life and do you still have it or do you need a new one?
Thoughts to ponder for a successful second chapter in life.
