Your Life Is Not A Dress Rehearsal - with Tom Rossiter Beyond Retirement

    • Self-Improvement

Tom Rossiter is a retired doctor currently living in Mount Pearl, Newfoundland, Canada. He is a poster child for living life Beyond Retirement!
Currently 84 yrs old, he continues to lead an active life, with volunteering at a local Seniors' complex, where he regularly plays his accordion, sings, and dances with the members. He's been learning Italian since 1998 and has been doing meditation since the 1980's.
We discuss a variety of topics, beginning with an overview of his life up to now. Some of the highlights include:
07:10 - Alderwood Retirement Centre - volunteering helps you as much as it helps the recipients
07:47 - drawing a picture in high school, to make a https://drive.google.com/file/d/1si09oci1l_HG7vjXjiiSaz6fgoyfCJVt/view?usp=sharing (stained glass window) (go to Beyond Retirement YouTube channel to see the beautiful window in the video, approximately at timestamp 9:12)
Tom has provided https://drive.google.com/file/d/1dWBXqanOCpVmjOXvb5qKZt_vt0hkwR1S/view?usp=sharing (a description of the symbols) in the window. Looking at the stained glass window, Tom drew the monk in the centre with 14 pieces surrounding it.
11:54 - his path to becoming a doctor
