The first week of September brings with it the vestigial vibes of that youthfully momentous moment, the end of summer and, with it, back-to-school energy. For us no longer wondering if we have the correct mix of pencils and notebooks, it brings on a certain drive towards accomplishing our year-end goals. It is a time to focus because before we know it the holidays will be upon us. This is a time to consider, plan, and put into action whatever it is that is important to us now. As we have all learned, time is the one resource that is not recoverable. Let’s make some memories, add some joy, and see how we can contribute out in the world.
Speaking of back to school, the AGEIST Book Club selections this month are up. Our own Gail Forrest says, “When Breath Becomes Airis fabulous…a must read.” Pick one of this month’s selections and let us know what you think in the comments. And for all you Gail Forrest fans, we have a new category in the AGEIST site menu, “Humor”, which is all Gail. Check it out; Gail is the bomb.
My goals for the next few months include getting my feet and ankles back on track. It seems that years of wearing the wrong (too much cushion and support) shoes have caused my precious feet to become exceptionally lazy. Solution? Wearing sock feet in the gym and going barefoot as much as I can. I also want to get back into dinner entertainment mode. After a pandemic, home renovations and considerable travel, we are ready to level up our hosting game. Chicken tagine, anyone? Lastly, I am determined to get back to seeing a real movie in a real movie theater every weekend. TV just doesn’t do it for me, but the big screen…oh, that works.
Wishing everyone a wonderful week.
Onward and upward,
