    764 Reading in Retirement

    Retirement introduces a special element to our reading life. We can feast over the entire reading realm. There are no limitations; sort of like our earliest experiences. We can read for pleasure alone.

    763 Regrets

    Dealing with regrets is a topic that was suggested to me by a loyal listener. I thought I could deal with it but it is proving more difficult than I could imagine.
    I like to look at the present and the future. Dreams seem to be about the only time mistakes of the past surface.

    We got an email from a friend a few years ago when he was celebrating his 88th birthday in Sarasota, Florida. "Going to dinner with my granddaughter and her Dad. Got myself a massage and just got home from my playwriting class. Busy day for an 88 year old."

    761 Finding Meaning in Retirement (2)

    We know having meaning in our lives is important but sometimes we have trouble finding it. Many times It may be more of a problem of recognizing it. We may already have found meaning in our life and just not recognize it as such.

    760 Finding Meaning in Retirement

    Yes, we retire. The parents, teachers, bosses and our own children no longer control us and they no longer give meaning to our lives. We are on our own. Now we must give meaning to our own lives.

    759 Watch Your Step

    Kids fall down and skin their knees. Football players fall down and bounce up - usually. My mother fell down at age 89 and never regained her health. Her fall led to surgery and then the nursing home and then the grave. We need to be a bit more careful about falling as we grow older.

Personal reflections on LIVING in retirement

This is a thoughtful and personal podcast on retirement. I love that Del doesn’t focus on investing, saving, or other typical topics you find on retirement podcasts. His topics may mention money, but in the context of using it well. I appreciate his perspective on living well in a way that is truly accessible to most people. Love the background guitar and his voice too!

Like good advice from an old friend

Del provides valuable insight to the many emotional challenges that accompany retirement. I find his topics of discussion to be right on target with my own considerations. I greatly appreciate the thought provoking dialogue and relaxing guitar in the background. Thanks and keep ‘em coming.

Gen-Xers Will Like This Too

As an older GenXer who is planning to retire in the next five years, I find Del’s thoughtful podcast lovely and inspiring. He gives me lots to consider as I start imagining what kind of retirement I would like. Please keep at it Del!
