Thanks for sharing, Royce. I am 58 and my wife is 60. I work as a freelance writer, and she works as an adjunct professor. Both of us love what we do for livings. We are fortunate we can continue working part-time. We plan on doing for as long as retain our health and senses, while also committing retirement savings and more time toward travel and other interests. Saving for retirement is critical during the first decades of adulthood, but we also need to think through what we really want to do during our retirement years. Those who neglect to do that can wind up feeling bored and rather unhappy.

Like a drink of cool water. Yes true, united as a species by design through mistrustful vigilance is counted on. Peace comes to those who allow themselves the humanness we create. 100% effort is perfect, waste of energy trying to be of perfection. Fear only those who live for dignity. They alone have the wake of carnage behind them with no remorse.

Comprehensively captured the essence of mindfulness. Indeed reaction-free sensitivity to the 'now' leads to clarity of thought and enhanced awareness. Ultimately the real journey is within.

Thank you for addressing mindfulness with such clarity Royce Shook. I was introduced to yoga & meditation in the sixties and periodically take a refresher course. We all need to literally, "Take a breather".

I tried to put myself in the mindset of those people in Hawaii when they received the message that there was an incoming missile and then about 40 minutes later saying it was a false alert. As I thought about what I would do in that situation I...

Thank you Royce Shook for sharing your wise perspective. Sounds timely and cross generational. Your words to your grandson are relevant to us today, as well as, for those who came before us.
